In June, 2105, the Mary Christie Foundation and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation hosted a symposium on Capitol Hill for Members of Congress, their staff, Administration officials and the public. The event, which preceded deliberations on the Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act, included addresses by several members of Congress and a panel discussion on addiction issues among young people, including discussion of a survey released that day indicating high rates of prescription drug use among college students. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Sheldon Whitehouse spoke, along with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Congressmen Stephen Lynch and Erik Paulsen.
