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.

President Donald Trump is officially declaring the opioid crisis a "national emergency".

"However, despite today's decision, this is not a problem we as a country are going to be able to arrest, incarcerate, or legislate our way out of", he added.

Trump held a briefing Tuesday on the crisis in Bedminster, vowing to "fight this deadly epidemic - and the United States will win".

Glenda Bonetti, Northumberland County Drug and Alcohol administrator, referred to the commission report and its statement that 142 people die daily in America of an overdose.

Julius said the opioid commission's report - which recommended removing certain Medicaid restrictions, improving access to naloxone, an overdose-reversing drug, and expanding access to medication assisted treatment - should guide the president's agenda on the crisis.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence addressing reporters Thursday at Trump National Golf Club.

Trump said Thursday that the nation's addiction to opioids is "a serious problem, the likes of which we have never had".


President Trump would like to use a "Just Say No"-style campaign to deal with the epidemic, but doctors at Baystate Medical Center say that may not be the only way to cure the problem". This is happening worldwide. This is bound to make waves as it will be the first time the USA government will declare an emergency over a long term public health issue.

Congressman Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., said when the declaration is made, it will help break down barriers to resources. This announcement comes just two days after he said that he favored "strong law enforcement" and a "Just Say No" type approach to prevention and education.

Trump's cringe-worthy answer suggested that he thinks that a national emergency is declared when he says there is an emergency.

The report also found that 40 percent of people with a substance abuse issue also suffered from mental health problems and less than half received treatment for either issue, and often it was lack of access to care, fear or shame and discrimination and lack of motivation.

"I welcome the news of a declaration of emergency on this issue", he said.

Drug addiction is a widespread problem, with an estimated 2.6 million opioid addicts in the US, a number that's growing.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions commended Trump for "taking this drastic and necessary measure to confront an opioid crisis that is devastating communities around the country and ripping families apart".

Declaring a national emergency was the top recommendation of the president's Commission on Combatting Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, which is chaired by Christie and released an interim, 10-page report July 31.
