​The Opidoid Epidemic: A National Emergency

On October 26, 2017 President Trump declared the Opioid Epidemic a national emergency.

His speech emphasized the need to eliminate heroin routes coming in from Mexico, while ignoring the fact that the majority of the deaths from completely legal prescription opioid painkillers. In 2015 alone, 12,990 died from heroin overdose and an astounding 20,101 died from prescription medications.

Trump has miles of red tape to cut through, but he’s hopeful that a robust advertisement campaign will be able to recede the flood waters.

Whatever the avenue to stop the abuse and resulting deaths from all opioids take is a step in the right direction.
