Senator Capito Identifies ATLAS as "Rising To The Challenge" of Addiction Crisis

Yesterday, West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) drew attention to the ongoing addiction crisis as part of her remarks on COVID-19. When identifying solutions, Senator Capito mentioned Shatterproof's new ATLAS program, which launched in West Virginia last week.

"Fortunately, we continue to not be alone in this fight," the Senator said. "Despite the other demands they are currently facing, community and local organizations continue to rise to the challenge. Just last week, Shatterproof, which is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reversing the addiction crisis in America, launched the Addiction Treatment Locator, Assessment, and Standards Platform, also known as ATLAS. ATLAS is the first resource of its kind to help those seeking addiction treatments find high-quality care and appropriate care. It was launched in six States. I am happy to say West Virginia was one of them, with the hope of expanding it to many more."
