RB2R 8: Senator John Keenan - Legislation and Recovery


Host Bill Farrell welcomes Massachusetts State Senator John Keenan. Senator Keenan is a leading proponent of major reforms addressing prescription drug abuse and substance abuse treatment. Senator Keenan continues to focus on the opiate abuse epidemic, with several pieces of legislation that aim to reduce our over-reliance on the pharmaceutical products that lead to addiction and overdose. He has several proposals that would expand access to treatment, reduce out of pocket costs for naloxone, provide broader and more effective pain management alternatives to opioid prescribing, strengthen the “Good Samaritan” law, and update trafficking statutes to reflect the recently emerged threat of fentanyl.
