Gillespie’s Plan To Tackle Addiction

In recent days, our statewide ticket has offered a unified message regarding mental health and addiction in the Commonwealth.  The current crisis impacts families across Virginia regardless of socioeconomic status.  Candidate for Governor Ed Gillespie released a plan focused on five key principles:

  • Addiction is a disease, not a moral failing;
  • A focus on intervention;
  • We cannot arrest our way out of the epidemic of addiction;
  • There are multiple pathways to recover; and
  • Help must be immediate.

Please take a moment to read the full plan and share it with your family, friends, and neighbors: https://edforvirginia.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/mental-health-addiction-recovery-agenda.pdf.
