Emergency funding for public treatment beds for addiction

This petition had 64 supporters

In a national pandemic of opiate overdose and death our politicians and leaders have added zero public beds for the treatment of addiction and heroin use disorder.

Emergency funding and services must be added immediately. 

There are immediately available private addiction treatment beds at DCF  CARF JAHCO accredited facilities throughout Palm Beach and Broward County. 

The State of Florida and our federal government should provide emergency funding of $50 million dollars to get these people suffering and dying from Substance Use Disorders into treatment at private facilities immediately. Several states are already doing this. Why can't Florida?
