Understanding the Opioid Epidemic

On August 10, 2017 President Donald Trump declared the Opioid Crisis a National Emergency.  This declaration is a momentous step in combating the Epidemic as it will likely result in increased resources that can be leveraged to turn the tide.

In order to effectively combat the epidemic it is imperative that all stakeholders develop a deep understanding of the varying nuances that have created and furthered the crisis. The New York Times released an article that very effectively illustrates the severity of the crisis. With the emergence of Fentanyl and lowering costs of heroin as well as the over use of prescription drugs, many people in this country and facing a challenge they cannot defeat on their own.
