As the nation continues to struggle with a prescription pain killer and heroin addiction crisis, on Wednesday, Legal Action Center published to great fanfare a report called Confronting an Epidemic. It contains our recommendations on how to improve access to an incredibly under-utilized and effective tool—medication assisted treatment. I have attached that, and an op-ed piece, which accompanied the report’s release, to this email. The op-ed is co-authored by our President/Director Paul Samuels and former Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy General Barry McCaffery.
