Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you for being a champion against the opioid crisis ravaging our communities. I wanted to highlight one bill that I think will be critical for us in fighting this epidemic: H.R. 6082, the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act.A law from the 1970s makes it difficult to share critical substance use treatment information between health care providers, even when a person wants their records to be shared. This means that health care providers are treating individuals without a full picture of their health leading to potentially dangerous treatment decisions.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
