The Obama administration issued a memorandum on Oct., 21, 2015, to federal departments and agencies directing two important steps to combat the prescription drug abuse and heroin epidemic:
The White House will host a Champions of Change event this spring to highlight individuals in communities across the country who are leading the fight to respond to prescription drug abuse and heroin use.
In 2010, the president released his first National Drug Control Strategy, emphasizing the need for action to address opioid use disorders and overdose, while ensuring that individuals with pain receive safe, effective treatment. The next year, the White House released its national Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan to outline its goals for addressing prescription drug abuse and overdose. This year the administration, through the CDC, launched the Prescription Drug Overdose: Prevention for States Program.
The program provided $20 million to states to support strategies to improve prescribing practices and prevent opioid overdose deaths. Through a competitive application process, CDC selected 16 states to receive funds through the program: Arizona, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont and Wisconsin.
Over the next four years, CDC plans to give states annual awards between $750,000 and $1 million each year, subject to the availability of funds, to advance prevention, including in these areas:
States can also use the funding to better understand and respond to the increase in heroin overdose deaths and investigate the connection between prescription opioid abuse and heroin use.
The president's budget for 2016 includes a request from HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell for the resources needed to expand CDC’s state efforts to all 50 states and launch a national program that will focus on prevention and prescription drug overdose surveillance.
