“Now more than ever, these services are so badly needed in our communities.”
Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle represents the 37th District in the New Jersey General Assembly. Throughout her career as a public servant, she has championed the expansion of substance use disorder treatment and services, and addiction prevention for New Jerseyans. In 2017, Assemblywoman Huttle sponsored the Substance Use Disorder Act, which promotes access to residential treatment and addresses problematic opioid prescribing patterns. The recent passage of Bill A4744 gives Medicaid-covered individuals in need of medication-assisted treatment quick access to the services they need.
Assemblywoman Huttle highlights COVID-19’s impact on individuals battling addiction, particularly those who struggle with opioid use disorder, and the importance of “empathetic and holistic care.”
