I have studied addiction in-depth as part of my neuroscience degree and understand many of the intricacies of this dangerous illness and the threats that it poses. We must take bold action now because we are losing too many of our friends, neighbors, and family members to substance abuse.
More Support Systems
Addiction is an illness and we must create more support systems so that community members can receive the help that they need. Sadly, many people in the rural areas of our district do not have access to the same resources that others in more suburban or urban areas do. As your delegate, I pledge to open more addiction treatment systems in the 56th district and fight to de-stigmatize addiction.
