Tim Kaine invites drug addiction prevention advocate to State of the Union

tim kaineToday, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine announced that his guest to President Obama’s final State of the Union address on Tuesday will be Don Flattery, a resident of Alexandria who lost his son Kevin – a 26-year-old graduate of UVA and Gonzaga College High School – to an opioid overdose in 2014.

Kaine has spoken with families, law enforcement and businesses across Virginia about the devastating impact that drug abuse has had on their communities and has worked across the aisle on efforts to combat the opioid epidemic.

Flattery has become an advocate in the fight against opioid addiction and is a member of the Governor’s Task Force on Prescription Drug and Heroin Abuse. He has been a vocal supporter of Kaine’s Co-prescribing Saves Lives Act, a bill that would help prevent opioid overdose deaths by encouraging physicians to co-prescribe the life-saving drug Naloxone alongside opioid prescriptions.

The bill would also make Naloxone more widely available in federal health settings.
