Harlem United Signs on to Letter to the Office of National Drug Control Policy

Harlem United, along with 200 other healthcare groups, sent a letter to the Office of National Drug Control Policy urging the Biden Administration to pursue proven solutions to end the overdose crisis and the drug war. 

Key policy recommendations include:

  1. Ground the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) in evidence-based drug policies backed by science and public health approaches
  2. Commit the ONDCP to dismantle the drug war
  3. Dedicate funds to sustain harm reduction providers
  4. Direct the Department of Justice to withdraw litigation challenging the operation of overdose prevention centers
  5. Permanently extend the SAMHSA/DEA COVID-19 accommodations for methadone and buprenorphine access
