Goodlatte statement on the Enactment of the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act

Published

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, President Donald Trump signed into law the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, a bicameral, bipartisan bill that combats the opioid crisis. Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued the statement below following the bill’s enactment.

“Families and communities across the United States have been devastated by the opioid crisis. This crisis is a national emergency and we need a comprehensive response to reduce opioid abuse and overdoses. The federal government alone cannot solve this crisis, but today, with President Trump signing into law the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, we are providing more resources to help prevent addiction and provide treatment options for those addicted to opioids. I thank President Trump for his leadership on this issue and I was honored to be present at the White House for the signing today.”

Additional Background: In 2016, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act was signed into law. The law, which contains several Judiciary Committee products, strengthens the enforcement of our nation’s drug laws, provides tools to combat addiction, offers appropriate treatment and care to addicts so that they can begin to reclaim and rebuild their lives, and leverages existing programs to accomplish these goals.
