President Obama addressed the nation this past weekend, and the first subject of discussion was focused around the drug epidemic and how he is seeking to gain additional funding for heroin and prescription opioid addiction treatment programs. The 21st Century Cures Act is currently in Congress and proposes 1 billion dollar in funding for treatment of heroin and prescription opioid addictions. The president shares shocking statistics on the drug epidemic and why proper treatment is crucial for recovery.
Heroin and prescription opioid addiction should not be taken lightly. People are dying everyday and the only way to ensure sustained recovery is through a proper treatment program.
