OACBHA Letter to Governor on Resolution

"Drug Free Action Alliance fully supports Governor Kasich's budget decision for Ohio to take advantage of Medicaid Expansion.  This opportunity will open up vital treatment and preventative options for Ohioans struggling with mental health and substance addiction issues.  Working with communities, colleges, families who have lost loved ones and youth groups throughout Ohio, we see firsthand the crucial need for expanding these needed services. We commend Governor Kasich for his courageous leadership in assuring that all citizens will have the guarantee of receiving the assistance that they need in order to maintain and grow in their professional and personal lives."

Marcie Seidel, OCPS I, Executive Director, Drug-Free Action Alliance

"Ohio Citizen Advocates is extremely grateful to Governor Kasich for including Medicaid expansion in his budget.  For the first time in many years, low-income childless adults may have the opportunity to access adequate health care including treatment for substance use disorders.  We applaud the Governor's foresight in this move that will help so many more people find recovery."
