This week, the House of Representatives passed over 30 bills to combat the opioid crisis that has taken far too many lives of our neighbors, friends, and family in Indiana. By passing these bills, the House is helping our communities with:
- Treatment and Recovery. Improving and expanding access to treatment and recovery services.
- Prevention. Addressing high prescribing rates and encouraging non-addictive opioid alternatives to treat pain.
- Protecting Communities. Giving law enforcement tools to get dangerous drugs out of our communities.
