Position Papers

Our Position: Responsible Opioid Prescribing
To combat the opioid epidemic, we're taking steps to reduce risk and harm—not reduce the availability of opioids when medically necessary.

Our Position: Medication-Assisted Treatment
It's not "replacing one addiction with another." It's an evidence-based treatment that's proven to save lives, reduce relapse, and help people live happy, healthy lives.

Our Position: Mass Incarceration
