CHA thanks Senate HELP leadership for pediatric measures in opioid package

This week, we sent a letter thanking leaders of the Senate HELP Committee for the inclusion of pediatric measures within S.2680, the Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018. The bill passed out of committee on April 24. The letter emphasizes measures in the bill that improve data collection, develop workforce initiatives for mental health and substance use disorder providers, and focus on the importance of trauma-informed care.
