Advocacy Alert: Tell Your Senators to Vote NO on the Graham-Cassidy Bill
The U.S. Senate is again considering a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Dubbed the "Graham-Cassidy Bill," after its sponsors, Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA), the new bill is gaining momentum and the Senate could vote on it as early as next week. We need your voice and your activism TODAY!
NAADAC joined over 450 addiction and mental health organizations in signing an updated letter to Senate leadership addressing serious concerns with how the Senate health care bill will affect the millions of Americans suffering from substance use disorders and mental illnesses who may lose their health coverage entirely or see reductions in benefits that impede access to needed care.
As part of its National Addiction Professionals Day celebration, NAADAC honors its 2017 Award Winners. This year NAADAC will present awards to four outstanding individuals for their extraordinary service and contributions to the addiction profession.
