Addiction and "the opioid crisis" are hot button topics in today's political dialogue from the White House to state legislatures and local city councils. Representative bodies around the country are considering legislation that will affect patients with addiction. For example, several states have passed or are considering laws to allow police and other first responders to be trained naloxone administration.

What efforts should we focus on for the biggest impact with our minimal non-clinical time?
