Is The Trump Administration Really Winning The War On Opioid Addiction?

Despite President Donald Trump’s focus on the opioid crisis, his administration hasn't yet reversed the tide of the deadly epidemic.

Nevertheless, Politico reports the White House can accurately point to signs of progress.

Opioid prescriptions are down from their 2012 peak, data suggests overdose deaths are slowing, and the crisis is getting far more urgency and attention.

But it's unclear what yardstick measures success.

For instance, the decline in fatalities may not mean that fewer people are overdosing.

It may mean that the campaign to make antidotes widely available is saving their lives.

But even though addicts' lives may be saved, people aren't necessarily getting treatment to end their addiction.
