TELL CONGRESS: Include Substance Use Screening in Final Opioid Bill
Earlier this week the Senate passed legislation to address the opioid crisis. Leaders from the Senate and House are meeting now to work out the differences between the Senate bill and the House version. While both bills address numerous issues, they do little to address prevention especially for middle and high school students.
We know that addiction can be prevented with early screening and intervention and we hope that you will join with us to urge Congressional leaders to add guidelines and best practices for screening for substance use to the final bill language. The National Institutes of Health has already developed best practices and guidelines on this type of screening and the American Academy of Pediatrics as well as other groups have published evidence-based materials on screening and brief interventions. By including this language, we will be encouraging more health professionals to screen adolescents for substance use disorders and taking an important step to stem the human and economic toll of addiction. We hope that Congressional leaders will be willing to add it to the final bill.
Please contact your representatives to make your voice heard and advocate for substance use screening:
