Joint letter of support for the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Act, H.R 7050

January 31, 2024 4:00 PM | Judy Pfeiffer (Administrator)

Linked is a joint letter of support for the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Act, H.R 7050 signed by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine (AOAAM). In short, the legislation would add an additional 1,000 Medicare GME supported residency positions in addiction medicine, addiction psychiatry, or pain medicine. Our belief is grounded in the necessity of increasing the number of residents specializing in these specialties, ultimately ensuring broader patient access to better and more effective care.

The AOAAM remains steadfast in our commitment to supporting legislation that advances care for individuals struggling with the disease of addiction. We will keep you informed on about updates related to the Substance Use Disorder Workforce Act, as well as other legislative relative to patient care and the practice of addiction medicine.
