An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Pass the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT) Act of 2021 (S. 445)

180 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

In the last year, at least 108,000 people died from preventable overdoses - the worst year in recorded history. No matter what we look like or where we come from, the overdose crisis reminds us that at our core we are all human. Our ability to get and stay well depends on everyone having what we need to prevent, treat, and recover from illness. So I am calling on you to ensure that every person in the U.S. has access to prevent, treat, and the ability to thrive. We need your leadership to pass the Mainstreaming Addiction Treatment (MAT) Act of 2021 (S. 445). With the MAT Act passing with bipartisan support through the House in H.R. 7666 on June 22, I ask that you now co-sponsor it and help pass it. Now is the time to invest in proven solutions - like lifesaving treatment - to stop preventable overdose deaths. To effectively respond to the urgency of the overdose epidemic, we need to eliminate barriers that prevent healthcare practitioners from providing evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders and fund SAMHSA. We need your leadership to end the overdose crisis. Thanks.
