"We spent a lot of money, a lot of time, and a lot of effort". Other reports suggest that more than 52,000 people died in the USA due to drug overdose in 2015, most of whom were victims of opioids overdose. "We've known for quite some time that we have a significant issue with opioid overuse, abuse, overdose in this county". For example, allocating more money to help pay for treatment and providing greater access to overdose-reversing drugs, like Naloxone.

"There's never been anything like what's happened to this country over the last four or five years", continued Trump Thursday.

Trump said that South Korea felt "more reassured with me than with other presidents in the past", but because South Korea also has a new president, and the South Korean people have never faced a threat as evolved as today's North Korea, it would be hard to gauge the accuracy of that statement. The study looked at how many opioid prescriptions emergency physicians gave to about 377,000 Medicare beneficiaries from 2008 through 2011.

Tom Price, secretary of health and human services, explained that emergency status usually is employed to short-term crises, such as the ebola and zika virus outbreaks in recent years.

Overdose deaths from opioids have quadrupled since 1999 and it is estimated that more than 500,000 people died between 2010-2015 alone.

Trump also initially rejected a key recommendation of the White House Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, which is chaired by Gov. Chris Christie.

Despite praising the president's pledge to double down on efforts to combat opioid abuse, Neal stressed the importance of maintaining the Affordable Care Act, a law which he noted contains at least $45 billion for opioid addiction treatment.

The Trump Administration will declare the US opioid epidemic a national emergency, according to White House pool reports, which should free up federal funding to be used for addiction treatment and prevention efforts.

BEDMINSTER, N.J. | President Donald Trump took on the opioid drug epidemic Tuesday, pledging that "we will fight this deadly epidemic and the United States will win".

"Much of it is being done without the declaration of a national emergency", Price told reporters in New Jersey, where the president is vacationing.

"An emergency declaration can be used for good but President Trump has given every indication so far he and his administration want to escalate the failed war on drugs", said Grant Smith, deputy director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance.

Frankly, Trump's waffling - not to mention the dated approach to opioid addiction he initially espoused - was an insult to Christie's work.
