White House Launches Websites on the Opioid Crisis – Drug for nerve pain boosts high for opioid abusers. (866) 348-2889
The White House recently launched two educational websites as part of its efforts to confront the opioid crisis in the United States.
- Opioids.gov educates the public about opioid addiction and overdose. This website also highlights the Trump Administration’s plan to help prevent addiction through encouraging safe prescribing and by reducing the illicit drug supply including stepping up efforts to seize illicit opioids coming through ports, shipments, and border crossings.
- CrisisNextDoor.gov shares a range of stories about the opioid epidemic and allows consumers to upload their own videos about overcoming addiction, volunteering at a recovery center, or helping a loved one get on the path to recovery. In a video on this website, US Surgeon General Jerome Adams talks about how opioid addiction affected his family.
