It’s Time to Act to Combat the Opioid Crisis

The Commission to Combat Drug Abuse and the Opioid Crisis has come out with recommendations for quick action.

They include:

  • Removing the cap on the number of beds at substance abuse facilities that can be covered by Medicaid.
  • Increasing access to medication-assisted treatment.
  • Developing better fentanyl detection devices for law enforcement.
  • Stopping the flow of synthetic opioids through the U.S. Postal Service.

Sherrod has worked on legislation addressing these recommendations before — and he is urging his colleagues in Congress to act the minute they get back to Washington.
