Opioids crisis: Trump indicates he could soon declare state of emergency

"Declaring a national public health emergency will elevate the opioid epidemic as the greatest public health crisis facing our country", he said.

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

Treatment providers and addiction specialists in MA welcomed President Trump's decision Thursday to declare a national emergency over the opioid epidemic - but stressed that they hope the president will put significant money into the effort.

With the declaration of a national emergency, the White House will have additional powers to waive certain health regulations, pay for treatment programs and make overdose-reversing drugs more widely available, according to USA Today.

Jenkins said he anticipates the actual declaration "at some point in the near future".

President Trump announced Thursday he would declare a national emergency to address the heroin and opioid epidemic, a decision that drew praise from local officials.

Two drugmakers - Mylan NV and Mallickrodt Plc - said this week they were subpoenaed last month by the Justice Department over the sale, marketing and manufacture of the pain drugs.

Trump also used language that sounded like a vintage sound reel from the 1980s: "If they don't start, they won't have a problem".

"I don't know what the answer is", Stanhope said. Some experts say an emergency declaration could have a more direct impact on healthcare providers beyond reimbursement coverage. 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. One such rule restricts where Medicaid recipients can receive addiction treatment. He has recognized this from before he was elected - he said it many times during his campaign. "We've been asking the state of OH to do this for awhile, numerous governors throughout the United States have declared emergencies, so this is a good first step". Opioid addiction, which began due to over-prescribing of legal drugs, has ruined lives in suburban and rural enclaves rich and poor. Sherrod Brown, said they hoped the emergency would prompt Congress to add dollars and manpower to fighting the epidemic.

John Lehman, president of the Florida Association for Recovery Residences, a Boca Raton-based nonprofit that certifies sober homes, said it would provide "desperately needed resources to reverse the tide". There are agencies in areas across the cabinet that are trying to come up with plans that will help to put a stop to the opioid addiction that is taking place across the country with the assistance of President Trump in the future.

Drug overdose deaths hit a record high between July and September of previous year, according to a National Center for Health Statistics report released Tuesday. That's up from 343 deaths in 2016. But a number of states say similar declarations have helped.
