Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert and owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics, gives an overview of some of the benefits of the sweeping legislative package to curb the opioid crisis signed by the President.
ROCKVILLE, MD. November 15, 2018: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new article on his website entitled, “New Legislation Aims To Curb Opioid Crisis.” Dr. Rosa reports on his presence at the President’s signing of new legislation to curb the opioid crisis.
Dr. Rosa writes, “On Wednesday, October 24, I had the honor of being present when the President signed into law a sweeping legislative package that lawmakers and public health experts alike believe will help curb the growing opioid crisis in the United States.” He continued, “In addition, my work on the opioid crisis was recognized by the White House during the signing ceremony. I was also encouraged to continue my work by the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, James Carrol, Chair of the Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission, Governor Chris Christie and Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway. They each generously offered their help on a major new project I am currently working on.”
“It is good to know,” says Dr. Rosa, “that the new legislative package directs funding to federal agencies and individual states to make greater access to addiction treatment a priority.” He elaborates, “In addition, the new legislation sets in place interventions to help mitigate the crisis, like preventing over-prescription and training law enforcement to intercept shipments, including the deadly and highly addictive drug fentanyl, at U.S. borders.”
“The work I am engaged in and promoting,” writes Dr. Rosa, “involves education in the use of non-pharmacological strategies to decrease pain, increase mobility, and limit the use of narcotic medications. This holistic approach includes such strategies as early intervention with good judicious integrative medicine. Integrative approaches include chiropractic care, acupuncture, diet/nutrition evaluation and behavioral therapies.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “Based on models that have proven successful in private practice throughout the country, The Department of Health and Human Services will now oversee a grant program to expand the use of “comprehensive recovery centers.” The programs include job training, mental health services and housing alongside addiction treatment.”
