Brindisi backs bill aimed at stopping stigma that surrounds addiction treated as a disease


Anthony Brindisi is backing a bill aimed at stopping the stigma surrounding addiction and treating it as a disease.

The freshman Democrat has introduced a bipartisan bill along with Republican Ted Budd of North Carolina in response to the opioid crisis which is ravaging the nation.

Brindisi says the best way to address the epidemic is by de-stigmatizing treatment, increasing science-based approaches and increasing education about substance abuse disorders.
