NASADAD has developed a comprehensive resource that summarizes final fiscal year (FY) 2024 funding for key federal programs related to substance use disorders (SUD).

As you may recall, Congress adopted a tiered approach to FY 2024 appropriations that resulted in two separate appropriations packages composed of six of the individual appropriations bills in each package.

President Joe Biden signed the first package, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024 (H.R.4366) now, Public Law No: 118-42, on March 9, 2024. This minibus included FY 2024 appropriations for the first six appropriations bills: Agriculture, Commerce-Justice-Science, Energy-Water, Interior-Environment, Military Construction-VA, and Transportation-HUD.

President Joe Biden signed the second package, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024 (H.R.2882), now Public Law No: 118-47, on March 23, 2024. This minibus included FY 2024 appropriations for the remaining six appropriations bills: Defense, Financial Services-General Government, Homeland Security, Labor-HHS-Education, Legislative Branch, and State-Foreign Operation.

The document includes a chart that summarizes final FY 2024 funding for SUD programs housed within the following federal agencies:

  • Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
    • Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
      • Substance Use Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery Services (SUPTRS) Block Grant
      • Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT)
      • Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP)
      • Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS)
    • National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)
    • National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
    • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    • Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)
    • Administration for Children and Families (ACF)
    • Department of Justice (DOJ)
    • Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)

Policy Brief Highlights Disasters and Substance Use – Implications for Changes to the Federal Robert T. Stafford Act (Updated)

Today, NASADAD is pleased to release an updated policy brief that examines the impact of disasters on substance use programs and services, highlighting the benefit of changes to Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP). The brief, titled “Disasters and Substance Use: Implications for Changes to the Federal Robert T. Stafford Act,” provides key insights into the challenges faced by substance use programs in the aftermath of disasters and opportunities for legislative action.

The brief cites studies showing that traumatic events can lead to an increase in substance use and place a strain on existing services. For example, the terrorist attacks of September 11th increased the intensity and need for substance use prevention and treatment services in New York State. The brief emphasizes the importance of coordination with State alcohol and drug agencies to ensure a comprehensive and effective response during disasters.

One of the key recommendations NASADAD offers in the brief is to amend Section 416 of the Robert T. Stafford Act to explicitly include substance use disorders in the portion of the statute that governs the CCP. The proposed legislation, known as the Addressing Addiction After Disasters Act (H.R. 5623 or the AAAD Act), aims to ensure that individuals struggling with substance use disorders receive the support they need in the aftermath of disasters. The legislation is led by Representatives Becca Balint (D-VT-at large), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), and Jill Tokuda (D-HI). The AAAD Act would help bolster intentional awareness, planning, and action regarding issues specific to substance use disorders within the confines of the short-term approach of the CCP.
