From the Chestertown SPY:

When Carin Miller’s son was about 19 years old, he began to abuse heroin by snorting pills, eventually moving on to shooting up. This went on for six years before he got help.

Lucas Miller’s history of drug use started in high school with smoking marijuana. When he moved out of his parents’ house, one of his housemates had access to between 750 to 1,500 pills at any given time between five houses located in Frederick, Maryland.

“My son was addicted to heroin, he’s in recovery by the grace of God since Thanksgiving 2014, I think that’s where we are at,” Miller said.

Opioid overdoses now rank with cancer, strokes and heart attacks among the top killers in Maryland.

This Thursday, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.J. Res 2, an amendment to the US Constitution that would require Congress to balance expenditures with revenues each year. If enacted, the "Balanced Budget" amendment (BBA) would likely force massive spending cuts to critical government programs, including mental health and addiction programs.

Will you take time today to urge your legislator to vote No on the Balanced Budget Amendment?

A Balanced Budget amendment would require Congress to approve a balanced budget every year. In the event of an economic downturn, safety net programs like Medicaid, Social Security, SNAP and more would be subject to steep cuts at the precise moment they are needed most.

Leading economists agree that when the economy is weakest, federal safety net programs should expand, not shrink, to cushion the economic blow to individuals and families and to keep the country from falling further into a recession.

Thursday's House vote is the first step toward enacting this harmful measure. By speaking up and voicing opposition to this measure, we can keep this bill from advancing to the Senate by sending legislators a short message today.

Urge your legislators to vote "NO" on H.J. Res 2!

Sincerely,

Chuck Ingoglia
Senior Vice President, Public Policy and Practice Improvement
National Council for Behavioral Health
