Administrator Anne Milgram Remarks on ONDCP Press Call Addressing the Overdose Epidemic
DEA’s mission is to keep American communities safe and healthy and we are in the midst of an overdose crisis that has reached a devastating new height. 265 people die every day from drug overdoses. Countless more [people] overdose and are fortunate to survive. This is a national crisis. It knows no geographical bounds. And it continues to get worse. This crisis is driven by fentanyl and methamphetamine.
