"It will hit every family and every household if we are not paying attention", said Kevin Kufeldt, program director of the Johnson County Adolescence Center for Treatment. The remark came just two days after Tom Price, the US Secretary of Health and Human Services, said that the problem could be addressed without declaring an emergency.
Trump's drug commission, led by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, recently called on him to declare a national emergency to deal with the opioid crisis. We're going to draw it up and we're going to make it a national emergency.
President Trump: 'Opioid crisis is a national emergency'
Experts said that the declaration was encouraging, but it's uncertain how big of an impact it will have on the opioid crisis . Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said such a declaration was unnecessary, the president reversed course .
Following a briefing on the epidemic earlier this week and recommendations in interim report from a presidential commission on the national drug crisis, President Donald Trump told reporters Thursday the emergency paperwork is being drawn up now.
In March, Trump appointed a commission to combat the public health crisis. "I have had the opportunity to hear from many on the front lines of the opioid epidemic, and I'm confident that by working with our healthcare and law enforcement experts, we will fight this deadly epidemic and the United States will win", he said, per a transcript available on the White House press news site.

Además se destaca que "se tiene acreditado la omisión de investigar respecto a la orden consistente en el abatimiento en horas de oscuridad, dirigida a la base de operaciones a la que pertenecían los militares".
"There's never been anything like what's happened to this country over the last four or five years", he said.
Usually national emergencies are declared for short-term crises such as the Zika virus outbreak or a natural disaster. Data from a Harvard/NYU study show that in Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia nearly 215,000 additional people were able to seek mental health and addiction treatment after the Medicaid expansion. The Trump Administration and Congress should prioritize scaling up access to the overdose-reversal drug naloxone and medication-assisted treatment, like methadone and buprenorphine, and resist efforts to expand the use of mandatory minimum sentences and criminalization.
Listeners of New Jersey 101.5's "Ask the Governor" know that Christie has been talking for year about drug addiction and changing the way the state's courts handle drug abuse.
