The opioid crisis is wreaking havoc on big cities and small towns all across the country. That's why RuralOrganizing.org has launched a campaign demanding that Donald Trump declare the opioid crisis a "national health emergency."
If we can convince the Trump administration to officially declare the opioid crisis a "national health emergency" then the Federal Government will be able to mobilize additional resources to combat this epidemic. For example, a declaration of emergency could remove the restrictions on which doctors can prescribe two common medications for treating opioid addiction. Or, with a declaration of emergency, the Food and Drug Administration could allow for the widespread use of an overdose antidote without a prescription.
Your story will help demonstrate the need for more resources to fight the opioid crisis in America! Please share your story today.
