WASHINGTON, D.C. –
U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who served three years as Indiana’s state health commissioner, says better partnerships are key to putting a dent in the opioid crisis statewide and throughout the country. In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Adams said the combination of more federal dollars and a focus at all levels of government on “better health through better partnerships” is a good start toward getting a handle on the issue. The omnibus spending bill introduced in Congress this week includes nearly $4 billion for resources to fight opioid abuse, which has been declared a national emergency by President Donald Trump, and is a stated priority for Governor Eric Holcomb.
