We're in the midst of an overdose epidemic. Drug overdose deaths are now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. The New York Times estimates that over 59,000 people died from a drug overdose last year alone.
Now Congress is on course to make the epidemic even worse. The current healthcare bill in the Senate would roll back Medicaid expansion, cutting vital access to healthcare for those hit hardest by the opioid crisis. For people struggling with addiction, access to healthcare is paramount. Without it, their risk of relapse and overdose increases.
Call your Senators and then send a message below. We can't let Congress make the opioid crisis even worse.
