Help pass two good opioid addiction prevention bills!

HB 399 and HB 400 by Rep. Steve Eliason (R-Sandy) are two great little bills that tackle important issues around opioid addiction with some common sense policies.

  • HB 399: Controlled Substance Abuse Amendments would require a written written warning label and informational pamphlet on the risks of addiction and overdose to be distributed to a patient with an opiate prescription. 
  • HB 400 Opioid Substances Abuse Amendments would require a prescriber to verbally discuss the risks of addiction and overdose from using an opiate drug with a patient, or the patient’s guardian (if the patient is a minor) before issuing an initial opiate medication to increase risk awareness and addiction.

Help get these two bills passed in the Senate these final days of the state legislative session!
