US NJ: Editorial: Opioid Addiction Is A National Emergency

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Herald News, 09 Aug 2017 - On Tuesday, President Donald Trump met with Cabinet members and senior staff at his golf club in Bedminster to discuss the opioid crisis. Missing at the meeting was Gov. Chris Christie, the chairman of the president's commission charged with studying the national rise of heroin and opioid addiction. Christie is on vacation. While the governor missed the meeting, the president is missing the message Christie has been sending for several years: treatment over incarceration will save lives. Long before his approval rating tanked at 15 percent, Christie used his then sizable political capital to focus on treatment and rehabilitation. He did it when he pushed for drug courts. He did it when he eloquently spoke of a law student friend who died because of addiction. And during his presidential bid, Christie resonated most effectively with voters when talking about drug addiction.

Wall Street Journal, 14 Jan 2017 - Addiction isn't an illness like any other. Patients need not just the right medicines but therapy, support and, in some cases, tough supervision The grim faces of the nation's opioid epidemic -- an overdosing parent slumped in the front seat of a car, mouth agape, with a neglected child in the rear seat -- have become too familiar in recent years.
