“I applaud the president’s decision to declare a public health emergency to address drug and opioid addiction. It will take an all-hands-on-deck approach with local, state and federal partners working together to attack this epidemic. Today, our state is engaging every resource at our disposal and using a three-pronged approach to tackle this problem with prevention, treatment and enforcement.
