Today's Heroin Epidemic

President's Article

The President will host a community discussion on the prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic in Charleston, WV. Communities in West Virginia and in states across the country have been developing and implementing responses that involve all sectors of their communities.

The President announced federal, state, local and private sector efforts aimed at addressing the prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic. These include commitments by more than 40 provider groups - representing doctors, dentists, advanced practice registered nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists and educators -- that more than 540,000 health care providers will complete opioid prescriber training in the next two years.

In addition, CBS, ABC, the New York Times, Google, the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball and other companies will donate millions of dollars in media space for PSAs about the risks of prescription drug misuse produced by the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. Please learn more at
