The Washington, D.C.-based Addiction Policy Forum is a diverse partnership of organizations, policymakers and stakeholders committed to working together to elevate awareness around addiction and to improve national policy. Nickel and the Addiction Policy Forum provided key guidance with the recent Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) and the U.S. House of Representative’s Opioid package.
