Supporting the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act

Mar 10, 2016 | Blog

The number of Americans addicted to prescription drugs and heroin has been growing at an alarming rate, even in my home state of Florida. Loved ones are seeing their husbands, wives, sons, and daughters trapped in a vicious cycle of addiction and dependency, desperate to get the care they deserve.
 
These cries for help deserve to not only be heard, but answered, which is why earlier this year, I joined Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) to co-sponsor the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a bill to address the national epidemic of prescription opioid and heroin abuse. This bill will ensure those who have fallen through the cracks can have access to proper treatment services and improved treatment options. CARA will help fight back against addiction by increasing prevention efforts and helping law enforcement fight this epidemic.
 
Washington has a role in the fight against drug abuse, and while CARA is a step in the right direction, the federal government must also do its part to help stop the illegal trafficking of drugs across our porous border while assisting our allies around the world in combatting the drug cartels that seek to push drugs into the U.S. I’m proud to have been a co-sponsor of this bill and proud of its passage in the Senate today.
