AYOTTE: So the Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act was a bill that I worked on for over two years with stakeholder groups from across the country that are on the front lines of prevention and treatment. We worked together to make sure it was a comprehensive approach focusing on prevention so that we can prevent our young people from beginning to use drugs in the first place, and second, treatment and recovery so that we can know that those struggling with addiction have support to turn their lives around. And really this is an approach that supports our first responders, too. We're losing a person a day to heroin and fentanyl and prescription drugs. It's devastating. And so for me this is about saving lives. I've met so many families who have lost sons, daughters, people that they love to this epidemic and so I want to make sure that we turn this around so people can lead really good lives here in New Hampshire.
