    CGS Letter Thanks Congress for Passage of Opioid Bill 


    On October 10, CGS sent a letter thanking Congress for passing H.R. 6, the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act, which would address the growing opioid epidemic in the U.S. In particular, the letter highlights a new program that would repay the student loans of healthcare professionals in substance use disorder occupations, serving as an incentive for entry into these high-demand fields.
