It’s a call to arms for what we are all fighting for.  Take some time out on Monday and do something that will really help us all.  It’s D-Day for Addiction and we all need to come together.

National Call In Day
This Monday at 5:30 PM (EST), the U.S. Senate will debate and vote on S. 524, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) of 2016.

It is important that your Senators vote in favor of this comprehensive, live-saving legislation.

Each day, 129 Americans die from drug overdose, more than half from prescription drugs alone. CARA is a bipartisan bill containing a compassionate, comprehensive response to this epidemic.

Please take a moment to tell your Senators that Americans cannot afford to wait any longer for addiction legislation to be passed. Starting at 9:00 am all day, just keep calling to get through to YOUR Senator’s staff person.

Call your Senators

Email your Senators

I sent my letters to Senator Richard Shelby and Senator Jeff Sessions III and it took all of two minutes.   Less than 2  minutes.  If you can’t do this, your truly one lazy sack of shitake mushrooms.  Sorry for the language… but you are.  I didn’t slide into alcoholism and then recovery off a rainbow.

With your help, Americans will receive a comprehensive response to addiction, including: prevention, treatment, law enforcement and recovery support services.

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) of 2016 is the most expansive federal, bipartisan legislation to date for addiction support services, designating between $40 million and $80 million toward advancing treatment and recovery support services in state and local communities across the country, which will help save the lives of countless people.
