ONDCP releases COVID-19 fact sheet

The Office of National Drug Control Policy has distributed a COVID-19 fact sheet that states that, “The Trump Administration is mobilizing the federal government to ensure the approximately 20 million Americans who struggle with the disease of addiction can access and continue to receive treatment and recovery support services, while keeping themselves and health care professionals safe from unnecessary exposure to COVID-19.”

The fact sheet addresses the need to 1) help Americans who struggle with addiction and 2) expand the use of telemedicine and electronic prescribing and 3) increase the flexibility for treatment with methadone and buprenorphine and 4) ensure that there is access to controlled substances and 5) support rural communities.
