NASW is working in partnership with the Legal Action Center’s Medicare Addiction Parity Project to collect stories from people who use Medicare and who have not been able to get the substance use disorder treatment they need. We are asking social workers, colleagues, family, and friends to submit stories that will be used to encourage policymakers to improve treatment and access to substance use disorder and other behavioral health services.
