White House releases drug policy priorities

The Biden-Harris administration yesterday sent Congress its first-year drug policy priorities, as required by each new administration. 

They call for expanding access to evidence-based treatment; advancing racial equity in drug policy; enhancing evidence-based efforts to reduce harm; supporting evidence-based efforts to prevent youth substance use; reducing the supply of illicit substances; removing barriers to employment for people in recovery and expanding the addiction workforce; and expanding access to recovery support services.
