|TAKE ACTION: Help get the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act passed Monday with just one phone call!|
Thanks to your help and support, theComprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA) passed unanimously through the Judiciary Committee. Let’s make sure politics do not get in the way as this bill comes up for a Senate vote this Monday, February 29. We need you to call your senator!
Join us Monday for a national call-in dayto urge your senator to vote YES to CARA.
Feel free to use this sample phone script:
"CARA provides important tools for treatment and recovery in the fight against heroin and opiate addiction. It would provide funds for an evidence-based opioid and heroin treatment and intervention demonstration, authorize the creation of a national youth recovery initiative, and provide funds to non-profits in order to create communities of recovery. These are crucial steps to controlling this epidemic and would benefit every state in the nation, including [STATE]. Please have Senator/Representative XXXX vote for this important legislation.”
Plus, if you haven’t already, please help us reach our goal of 10,000 signatures to have CARA passed. Sign our petition to ensure that this legislation receives the attention and support that it deserves.
Together, let’s demand our elected officials pass CARA and help improve the lives of the millions of people affected by addiction!
