Donald Trump on opioids: "We're going to make it a national emergency"

He said his administration was "drawing up documents" and he was "officially" declaring it an emergency, but his administration has yet to release details as to what that statement means.

In March, the president assembled a panel to research the opioid crisis and its discovery was shocking; the panel concluded that we are facing death tolls as large as 9/11 every three weeks because of overdoses.

President Donald Trump speaks to the press at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Thursday.

Still, Price stressed that "all things" were "on the table for the president". "Then, we have a large amount of the community out there who have already developed opioid disorders that are underserved, and undertreated", Dr. Jack Kabazie, the director of pain medicine at the Allegheny Health Network, said. It requires meaningful action and investment.

In fact, while drug overdoses happen all over the world, the USA leads by a significant margin.

CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said "the question will be: Will that money be used to increase hospital bed availability, medically assisted therapy for the millions of people now addicted and widely available naloxone to prevent overdose deaths?". "No other country in the world has the perverse amount of consumption as we do in the United States".

Mr. Price said this week that most such declarations are for a specific outbreak of an infectious disease, such as the threat from the Zika virus, or are limited geographically to a specific location, like Hurricane Sandy, which hit the New Jersey coast in 2012.

Hood said the idea of a national emergency would jump start solutions on aggressively fighting the drug epidemic that's sweeping the country.

"People are dying out there", he said. At the street level, police, firefighters and paramedics now routinely carry naloxone (brand name Narcan), the anti-overdose drug that can yank an addict back from the brink of death. In 2015, officials said, 33,000 of the 52,000 overdose deaths nationwide were the result of the use of opioids like heroin and fentanyl. But since then, we hadn't seen any photos of them.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown applauded this decision, saying the declaration is overdue.

In 2016 Congress did approve $1 billion in funding over two years for state grants to fight the opiate epidemic as part of the 21st Century Cures Act. "We all have to be in this effort together".

Trump drew criticism recently after transcripts of a call with Mexico's president showed him describing New Hampshire as a "drug-infested den".

"I am alarmed at what appears to be a dangerously uncoordinated response to the emergency unfolding in front of our eyes", said Ryan, urging the president to "formally issue this order as soon as possible".
