Opioid Legislation Discussion

This month the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Public Policy Committee, chaired by Jason Kauppi and legislative consultant Matt Keswick, welcomed State Sen. Jennifer Flanagan, Chair of the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Committee, for a discussion on opioid legislation in Massachusetts.

As opioid addiction has become a major problem in our communities, it is important that we learn more about the steps being taken at the state level to combat it.

Flanagan is currently leading the fight against opioids and substance abuse in the Massachusetts Senate. In addition to other committees, she is the chair of the Senate Special Committee on Opioid Addiction Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery Options. She has filed Substance Abuse Recovery legislation which increases opportunities for long-term substance abuse recovery in the Commonwealth by supporting a continuum of care and removing barriers that stand in the way of effective treatment.
