The Opioid Epidemic

America has an addiction crisis. These deaths now kill more Americans than car accidents. Addiction affects families that are affluent and poor, Republican and Democrat, and young and old. This threatens our families, and we must do what it takes to solve this epidemic. We must give law enforcement, medical providers, and drug prevention workers the tools and resources they need to combat this crisis, and utilize federal funding for education, additional treatment facilities and to expand programs that fight the epidemic.
