SUD Workforce Bill Passes House
June 13, 2018 by NBCC Government Affairs
Congress is in the process of developing opioid legislation and H.R. 5102/S. 2524, The Substance Use Workforce Loan Repayment Act of 2018, is under consideration.  H.R. 5102/S. 2524 provides student loan repayment to counselors and other behavioral health professionals. This legislation is vitally important, as the number of overdose deaths continues to skyrocket throughout the country.

H.R. 5102 passed the House on June 12 and now we must work to gain support for the legislation in the Senate. Visit our Grassroots Action Center and tell your Senator to include S. 2524 in the opioid package and strengthen the behavioral health workforce.
