Trump Declares Opioid Crisis A "National Emergency"

Trump Declares Opioid Crisis A

"But this is a national emergency and we are drawing documents now to so attest", the president said Thursday.

This week, President Trump said he is going to officially declare the opioid epidemic a national emergency.

Trump says he's serious about addressing the opioid epidemic. The Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, said that the president assured, however, that the opioid crisis in the country will be treated as an emergency. I have been undecided about the declaration for this reason - show me the resources and are we going to achieve our goal.

Trump's declaration follows the top recommendation of his Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, which is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

"Our citizens are dying".

Over 100 Americans die of overdoses daily, wrote the commission in a report, stating that "America is enduring a death toll equal to September 11th every three weeks".

National security adviser H.R. has recommended to increase the number of USA troops in war-ravaged Afghanistan to bolster American forces in the country, CNN reported.

Trump didn't release specific information about the wording of the declaration, which still was being drafted as of Thursday afternoon.

Christie lauded the president's decision, saying Trump "deserves great credit".

Across the country, overall drug overdose deaths are rising to new highs - 60,000 estimated fatalities in 2016. New government data show an increase in opioid overdose deaths during the first three quarters of past year, an indication that efforts to curb the epidemic are not working.

Her doctor, Regan Nichols, is now facing five second-degree murder charges - one for each patient who overdosed after she prescribed them opioid drugs such as Oxycontin, prescriptions that can lead to addiction.

"Sometimes a verbal support is a good first step, but there's a lot that needs to happen around education, prevention, treatment, recovery, law enforcement, so I don't know what this means yet", Bergeron said.

CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said "the question will be: Will that money be used to increase hospital bed availability, medically assisted therapy for the millions of people now addicted and widely available naloxone to prevent overdose deaths?"

Tens of millions of others have also managed their pain through opioids-allowing them to carry on productive lives that otherwise might not have been possible-without becoming addicts. "Instead we need to make sure people suffering from addiction have access to the treatment they need to get better". "So declaring a state of emergency seems like the right thing to do, since we're not seeing our numbers go down".

A poll by Kaiser Health News found that eight in 10 Americans believe President Trump should try to make the current health laws work. "It's about time that they did something to help clean the problem up", he said.

Dr. Arthur Reingold, a professor of epidemiology at the University of California-Berkeley, applauded Trump's initiative.

Groups advocating for a public health-centered approach to the epidemic are anxious about what powers an emergency declaration would grant an administration with a fondness for "tough on crime" law enforcement tactics. "It remains to be seen how much this will fundamentally change its course", said Caleb Alexander, co-director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness. "This is not a problem that we can incarcerate our way out of".
