Opioids

Opioids

From coordinating efforts for the placement of drug drop boxes to requiring oversight and accountability for recovery houses to ensure they’re safe, Todd is fighting to protect our community from opioids. More than 5,000 Pennsylvanians lost their lives to overdoses in 2017 and its possible even more will die in 2018.

This crisis is unlike any other drug crisis we have ever seen. Heroin has never been so plentiful nor so cheap and the haunting story of people suffering an injury and quickly becoming addicted to their prescriptions is one which nearly all of us have a connection to.

Todd has supported legislation which created a Prescription Drug Monitoring database, provides better education for consumers on pain management, limits prescriptions for minors, and increases access to treatment opportunities.
