Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
Mitchell S. Rosenthal, M.D., the founder and former president and CEO of the Phoenix House chain of addiction treatment centers, has been named to the board of directors of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America (PDFA).
“As a leading expert on addiction treatment, his board membership reaffirms our commitment to helping parents intervene in and find treatment for drug and alcohol abuse by their children,” said PDFA chair Patricia Russo. “With his deep insight and experience, he will help us further equip parents and caregivers with information to protect their teens, guide them when their child needs help or support them and their child through recovery.”
