I need this treatment: Recovering addicts tell Murray, DelBene importance of Medicaid
If Medicaid is taken away, I don’t know if I can still get help.
That’s the message Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Suzan DelBene heard from recovering opioid addicts Friday in Seattle.
“I had a physical and mental addiction to heroin, which led me to my first treatment program,” recovering addict Angelina Martain said. “The thought that I could get into a program, the fact that I could find help was so amazing. It was because of my insurance, because of Medicaid.”
