Preventing & Treating Addiction

Sheldon Hug

I’ve made it my mission in the Senate to help end the opioid addiction crisis that has afflicted far too many Rhode Island families from every walk of life. The bipartisan Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act I wrote with Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) is the most far-reaching and effective law ever passed to address addiction in America. We’re continuing the progress we’ve made with proposals to increase support for the babies born addicted to opioids, and to hold big pharmaceutical companies accountable for the harm they’ve caused.
