Trump now says he'll declare opioid crisis 'national emergency' as Christie suggested

In March, the president assembled a panel to research the opioid crisis and its discovery was shocking; the panel concluded that we are facing death tolls as large as 9/11 every three weeks because of overdoses.

He said he'd be drawing up documents to formalize the declaration soon.

Gov. Tom Wolf on Tuesday had urged the president to heed the recommendations of an opioid commission co-chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

"It is a serious problem the likes of which we have never had". "We look forward to continuing the commission's efforts and to working with this president".

Across the country, more than 100 Americans die every day from overdoses.

Addicts often say they want the most powerful drug they can find, and often seek batches of drugs that have been linked to rashes of overdoses.

I sincerely hope that it's the former and not the latter. This could loosen restrictions on how and where money is spent - for example, when it goes for residential treatment programs and how law enforcement accesses tools like drugs to reverse heroin overdoses. The emergency declaration would allow the President's cabinet to increase federal funding and accelerate federal support for treatment and prevention initiatives nationwide.

He said his administration will spend a lot of time, effort and money on the crisis.

Dr. Myechia Minter-Jordan, president and chief executive of the Dimock Center, said that declaring a national emergency could mobilize resources and spur innovations.

Kim accused Trump of spouting nonsense and said "sound dialogue" is not possible with a person "bereft of reason, and only absolute force can work on him", which drew a fair bit of attention in the press. He said the agency could negotiate drug prices for medication-assisted treatments like buprenorphine to ensure providers maintained adequate supplies.

"If it opens up more treatment beds, it's a good idea".

They are "the gold standards", said David T. Jones, commissioner of the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services.

However, returning to the issue on Thursday, Trump seemed to have changed his tone. Price said: "The president certainly believes that it is, that we will treat it as an emergency - and it is an emergency". "The latter would be more in line with how the administration has handled its drug policy to date, more than the former". "We need to aggressively pursue drug dealers who are preying on our communities". It is encouraging that the Commission highlighted the need to better enforce mental health and substance use treatment parity with private insurers. "It needs a clinical approach".

Six states have announced their own opioid-related public health emergency or disaster declarations in recent years, and a seventh, Indiana, issued a declaration to respond to an HIV outbreak that was driven by injection drug abuse. Coderre said in a state of emergency, the federal goverment could directly distribute both MAT and naloxone to municipalities and states.

Thanks for your continued support.

. "And nowhere do we pay the price as dearly as with prescription opioid medications".
