Tell your Senator to protect the Medicaid expansion and Essential Health Benefits so that people with substance use disorder can receive the treatment they need. If Medicaid Expansion is repealed, states hardest hit by the opioid epidemic would be at greatest risk for reductions in coverage.
A fully integrated healthcare system must account for the treatment of substance use disorder. Addiction is a health issue, not a moral failing, and should be treated as such.

Hi, my name is (STATE YOUR NAME), and I am deeply concerned about the Senate’s push to repeal the Affordable Care Act. I strongly urge the Senator to vote NO. We are in the midst of an opiate epidemic. With 144 people dying every day to an overdose, more Americans are in need of substance use disorder treatment than ever before. Taking away critical Medicaid coverage would only exacerbate this crisis and hurt the most vulnerable populations suffering from addiction.
