Congress Votes to Make Drug Addiction a Health Issue
While it has been an uphill battle convincing federal lawmakers that drug addiction should be considered a health issue rather than a problem dealt with at the hands of law enforcement, congressional forces have finally approved a measure intended to change the way the U.S. handles people strung out on heroin and prescription painkillers.
On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives put its final approval on a bill called the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a measure that will allow more low-level drug offenders to be entered into diversion programs rather than get jammed up in the criminal justice system. It also provides for the advancement of a variety of other important programs aimed at reducing opioid abuse and overdose deaths.
