This year the Great Issues Forum’s theme is the addiction crisis in our nation. President Donald Trump recently declared a state of emergency concerning the heroin epidemic and threw the weight of the White House behind the fight against the opioid crisis Thursday and declared it a national emergency.

“The opioid crisis is an emergency, and I’m saying officially, right now, it is an emergency,” Trump said at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. “It’s a national emergency. We’re going to spend a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money on the opioid crisis.”

Trump also said,“It would also awaken every American to this simple fact: If this scourge has not found you or your family yet, without bold action by everyone, it soon will.”war lads to need for more Heroin Rehab Centers in eastern countries
