New resources for the opioid crisis

NLM Toxicology and Environmental Health Info

Opiates are chemicals that come from the poppy flower. A synthetic form, opioids, are used in medications. On October 26, 2017, Acting Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Eric D. Hargan declared a public health emergency to address the national opioid crisis. A public health emergency declaration lasts for 90 days and can be extended. Yesterday, the President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis released a report that includes 56 recommendations for action.  

In this email, we have compiled a list of resources that provide authoritative information on the opioid crisis.
