Tim Fox on Drugs

 

 


Substance abuse is number one crisis in state

Democratic governors have failed to adequately address the substance-abuse crisis, Fox asserted. "The substance-use disorder crisis is the number-one crisis in our state," he said. "We all know somebody who knows somebody who's had an issue." Fox is proud of his record on tackling substance abuse in Montana since he became attorney general in 2013. He worked with the Montana Senate on a bill that combats "doctor-shopping" by opiate addicts and limits opioid prescriptions for certain patients.

Need more treatment options, like drug treatment courts

We need more treatment options. I brought a bill to expand and create a steady funding stream for drug treatment courts. Treatment courts are a proven alternative to incarceration for many in our justice system who struggle with substance abuse. This year's legislation is a step in the right direction, but it cannot be the final step.
