Our nation is in the midst of an opioid addiction epidemic.
For decades, New Mexicans have known all too well the devastating effects of opioid addiction and the difficulty finding treatment for family members. Rather than alienating those struggling with drug addiction, Martin believes we must emphasize rehabilitation and treatment.
The Trump Administration has failed to deliver real resources to combat opioids. Martin helped pass $6 billion in funding to address the opioid epidemic, but he knows that is not sufficient. That’s why he’s working to pass a $45 billion investment in prevention, detection and treatment of opioid addiction – critical funds to expand treatment options in New Mexico and help those suffering from addiction begin recovery.
