Combatting the opioid epidemic in West Virginia and across the country is one of Senator Manchin’s biggest priorities in the United States Senate. He works with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to secure the additional resources we need to fight this epidemic. He has introduced multiple bi-partisan bills aimed at supporting recovering addicts and funding programs that help addicts receive the treatment they need.
Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the nation and unfortunately, West Virginia leads the nation in overdose deaths. In light of these growing concerns, Senator Manchin launched the Prescription Drug Abuse Caucus. Through this caucus, members work together with stakeholders in hopes of developing legislation and urging Congress to invest in programs that will end the ongoing opioid epidemic and prevent future drug abuse.
