Guiding the Process for Substance Abuse Treatment Advocates


Guiding the Substance Abuse Treatment Advocates

It’s called the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant—the main vehicle for delivering treatment dollars to Americans in every state. WSW was privileged to provide a complete menu of turn-key services to this association of treatment providers to educate Congress about the success of essential innovative, cost-effective approaches to addiction treatment and recovery. WSW coordinated legislative fly-ins for association advocates and organized congressional briefings in the House and Senate – critical tools for building support on Capitol Hill. The approach included strategic coordination of goals between bipartisan congressional caucuses in the House and Senate. The effort resulted in a major victory for the treatment community.
