Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA)

An update from Shatterproof.org, on the recent passage of the CARA.
Read the entire post here.

"This bill is an important first step, addressing the opioid epidemic in several ways. It authorizes $181 million in spending for treatment, prevention and recovery programs, and it allows nurse practitioners and physician assistants to prescribe buprenorphine to help treat opioid addiction. Most notably, it is clear recognition by both Congress and the administration that addiction must be treated as a health issue, not a crime."
