Fighting the Crisis Next Door
Two million Americans suffer from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids. In 2017, opioids killed more people than either car accidents or gun violence.
Americans cannot let stigma, silence, or a lack of information prevent us from confronting this crisis. The Trump Administration is committed to leading that charge. Just as President Trump shared his personal story last October about his brother’s struggle with alcoholism, all Americans whose lives have been touched by opioid addiction deserve a place to tell their stories.
Now, they have one. “We're announcing a new website, CrisisNextDoor.gov, where Americans can share their stories about the danger of the opioid addiction and addictions,” President Trump said yesterday in Manchester, New Hampshire. “This epidemic can affect anyone, and that's why we want to educate everyone.”
If you have an experience to share, you can record your story directly from your iPhone or upload a pre-recorded video. You may also watch what others have to say about confronting opioid addiction.
Visit ‘The Crisis Next Door’ now to hear these voices—or to lend your own.
