There was a flurry of activity in Washington last week. The White House held its long anticipated Opioid Summit. Participants discussed actions already taken by the Administration. While statements were made that anyone who needs treatment should be able to access it, the tone of the event was focused on a tougher law enforcement approach. The President mentioned that perhaps drug dealers in the US should be executed.

The Opioid Crisis was addressed in the President’s recent State of the Union Address. He stated that his administration will provide treatment for anyone suffering from addiction. Subsequently, the White House released its 2019 Budget proposal. It contains a request for $10 billion to fight the Opioid Epidemic – a significant increase from the $3 billion contained in the budget recently passed by Congress.
