Rick Werner went to Capitol Hill again in December, 2017 to discuss the opioid crisis with Democratic Senators in light of on-going budget negotiations with the Trump Administration that could affect treatment availability for opioid users. Rick is introduced by Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen at about the 16:00 minute mark.
“The opioid epidemic is still destroying lives across this country. Funding to handle this public health emergency must be included in any year-end spending bill. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Maggie Hassan, Senator Edward J. Markey and Senator Chris Van Hollen join families and health professionals to stand up for those across the country battling this crisis.”
