    Help us change the story of addiction

    Families face too many obstacles getting the help they need. What could be stories of hope are full of heartache and frustration instead. We're harnessing the power of storytelling to break barriers and transform the addiction journey. Help us fix the system.

    Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023

    President Biden recently signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023, a $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that includes billions of dollars in funding and several policy changes critical to addressing the mental health and addiction crises.

    At least ten of the bills for which we had action alerts were at least in part included in this law. This is in large part thanks to the help of our advocates who shared their stories and signed action alerts to ensure Congress knew the importance and urgency of enacting these policies.

    We encourage you to continue this advocacy by taking a moment to send a letter to your members of Congress to thank them for including important addiction-related provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act and encouraging them to continue to make addressing addiction a priority in the new session:

    As bills are introduced in the new session of Congress, there will be more opportunities for advocacy, and we will be posting new action alerts here.
