In comments on Tuesday, August 8, President Trump stopped short of declaring the state of national emergency, but stressed the importance of prevention and law enforcement.
Experts said that the national emergency declaration would allow the executive branch to direct funds towards expanding treatment facilities and supplying police officers with the anti-overdose remedy naloxone. The state is suing five pharma companies for flooding the state with prescription painkillers that gave rise to the state's addiction and overdose crisis.
They are "the gold standards", said David T. Jones, commissioner of the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services. Both senators have called for more steady access to naloxone, a drug that emergency responders can administer on the spot to stop the effects of an overdose. Previously, Christ says, there was a lag of 6 to 18 months in data reporting, which made responding to the crisis harder.
Federal agencies can help increase the use of medication-assisted treatment for addiction, such as methadone and buprenorphine, the report says. He said the DEA might be able to use the emergency to require prescriber education for doctors and others who dispense opioids. If they don't start, they won't have a problem.
Hood, whose son died of an accidental drug overdose, said avoidance is simply easier said than done.

There is treatment available. He later promised to help people who "are so seriously addicted". "When I was growing up, they had the LSD and they had certain generations of drugs. We need to aggressively pursue drug dealers who are preying on our communities".
"I welcome this declaration but it must be followed through with action", said U.S. Sen.
In fact, while drug overdoses happen all over the world, the USA leads by a significant margin. "I think it just points out the fact that this is a nationwide epidemic". He said, "If this statement gets more money, that's good". "We really need his leadership on this". "I don't know how to tell you how delighted I am".
