Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on Senate passage of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act:

"The growing opioid and heroin abuse epidemics in Arkansas and across the country are ruining lives and devastating families and communities. If we want to truly resolve these problems, we must attack them at their root: addiction. Regrettably, only ten percent of those suffering from addiction receive the care and treatment they need to recover and resume productive, meaningful lives. This bill provides communities with the resources and support they need to help those suffering from addiction and combat drug abuse."
