Opioid is a widespread disease that is affecting many families all over the country I am attempting in the Paper about what is needed for us to “What needs to be done to address the opiod crisis in the United States?” first of we must recognize that there is this problem and those that are affected by this must admit that they have this disease.

So many people in leadership positions can and are able to use their position to help get the word out and educate people of the necessary solutions to this problem. The age group of many deaths start at age 19-25 we need to get in to the schools and neighborhoods to help to reach them at an early age. We know that our younger generation are educated in technology and they spend a lot of time on social media this is a great way to educate them.

In cases that we are not able to reach the individual before drastic situation happen such as overdose we should make naloxone that is known to work available to first responders so that they have a fighting chance. Helping our insurance companies to realize that coverage for treatments such as addiction is needed that they are able to get help.
