The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) in the Fight Against Opioids

The ACP, A Game Changer Connecting People in the Fight Against Opioids

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program launched by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States to help low-income households access affordable high-speed internet services. The program is part of the broader Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) initiative, which was established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to help individuals and families stay connected during the public health emergency.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a game-changer in the fight against opioids for several reasons, including:
Access to Telehealth

The ACP provides affordable high-speed internet access, making telehealth services accessible to underserved communities. This program enables people in rural or remote areas to receive medical care, including mental health services and addiction treatment, without leaving their homes.

Education & Awareness

The ACP provides people with the resources and knowledge they need to understand the dangers of opioids, including how to recognize the signs of addiction, how to safely dispose of medication, and how to access addiction treatment.

Support for Recovery

The ACP connects individuals in recovery with resources and support services, including online recovery support groups, virtual meetings, and peer-to-peer support.


The ACP provides individuals with easy access to information and resources on opioid addiction, including prevention and treatment options. This program connects people with community resources, treatment centers, and support groups, ensuring that they have the resources they need to overcome addiction.

Overall, the Affordable Connectivity Program plays a crucial role in connecting people in the fight against opioids by providing access to education, support, and treatment resources to those who need them the most.
