HHS Secretary Azar Praises Trump Administration ‘Truth about Opioids’ Campaign

HHS Secretary Alex Azar issued the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s release of a set of advertisements promoting awareness among young people around opioid addiction:

“No one individual has done more to raise awareness of our country’s opioid crisis than President Trump. Raising awareness is a key piece of defeating the threat of opioid addiction, which too many Americans still do not fully understand. These ads are a targeted effort to promote awareness, especially among our youth, about the deadliness of opioid misuse and the risks of opioid addiction. HHS is proud to support these efforts, which reflect a recommendation from the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, and to continue our department’s work to educate the public about opioid addiction.”
