We were thrilled to welcome Sen. Wyden, Sen. Merkley and Congressman Blumenauer to Lines for Life to discuss strategies for ending the opioid-addiction crisis. We heard from families devastated by addiction, top doctors, treatment professionals and community leaders.
It’s clear we need better access to non-opioid pain management alternatives, better access to treatment for addiction, and we need to work to remove stigma and treat addiction like a brain disease – not a moral failing.
Sen. Wyden promised to champion the issue—and that today’s forum is “to be continued!”
