The Crisis Next Door

Donald J. Trump

A message from the President

In 2019, more than 2 Million Americans will suffer from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids

Opioids killed more people last year than either car accidents or gun violence. This crisis of addiction can affect any American, from all-state football captains to stay-at-home mothers.

As a result, Americans across the country are feeling the weight of the crisis next door.
