CARA Passes Senate in 90-2 Vote

July 15, 2016 3:19 PM | Anonymous

The Senate earlier this week passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA). 

The bill, which focuses on treating substance use disorder as a chronic illness rather than a criminal offense, expands education and prevention efforts, strengthens prescription drug monitoring programs, and increases first responder access to naloxone. The bill also allows nurse practitioners and physician assistants to prescribe buprenorphine with some restrictions.
