Congressional Heroin Bill

From Punishment to Prevention

“Well now we know it’s an illness” Heroin addiction is a hot topic on the political scene and we’re hearing some very different rhetoric on the Senate floor. “We’ve been treating it as a crime,” said Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va). “I’m as guilty as anybody else. I was governor of my state, and my goodness, when this epidemic started hitting and people were fooling with these drugs we thought It was a crime we’d throw ‘em in jail”

The bill, The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, sponsored by Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) would authorize federal officials to change drug strategy from punishment to prevention, combined with a reform of “the broken treatment industry.”

“We welcome our representatives in Washington’s new view of heroin addiction as a disease. As with cancer patients, there are treatment options and Tranquil Shores is committed to helping those addicted to heroin and other substances attain long term, successful recovery,” said Tranquil Shores Founder and CEO Chad Johnson. “By decriminalizing the heroin user, we give them a better chance to seek and benefit from comprehensive treatment.”

If you, or someone you care for, is struggling with substance abuse, Tranquil Shores offers a warm, friendly, beach-front oasis along with a competent, highly- trained staff to help you reclaim your life!
