Recovery in the 21st Century CURES Act

Recovery in the 21st Century CURES Act

The week of December 5, 2016, the U.S. Senate will vote on the 21st Century Cures Act.  The 21st Century Cures Act has many important provisions that expand our response to addiction, including $1 billion dollars in grant funding.

However, we are very concerned that one of the 6 key elements of a comprehensive response, recovery support services, will be left out of the 21st Century Cures Act funding. This critical component receives the least federal money and attention but does incredible lifesaving work in communities nationwide.

Recovery support services includes the recovery support provided by recovery community organizations, recovery high schools, collegiate recovery communities and recovery housing.

Help us to urge Congress to communicate with SAMHSA and DOJ who are administering these dollars to ensure that 10% is dedicated to recovery support services, which is consistent with the framework and intent of CARA.
