A Good Indicator: Funding for CARA Included in Temporary Measure 
 
Yesterday Congress passed short term funding to keep the federal government operational until December 8th. The good news for the addiction field is that additional funding not in current budgets was included for the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA).
 
Usually in these short term funding measures, only existing programs are extended. That CARA money was added is a very good sign it will be continued when next year's budget is passed. NAATP will continue to push for a positive funding outcome for CARA.
