Help Secure Funding for Recovery and Family Support Programs

    The Senate is currently considering the HEALS Act to fund a number of pressing needs related to COVID-19, including substance use and mental health.

    We need your help

    As it stands now, the legislation would provide $4.5 billion for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for treatment and prevention. We are asking that $50 million of that total be set aside for peer recovery, continuing care and ongoing community support for individuals to maintain their recovery and $5 million to fund local programs to help caregivers and families address substance use disorder and find care for a loved one.
