Drug abuse and addiction prevention efforts must start in childhood. That starts with dedicated parents and strong communities, and local education. As President, Jeb Bush will ensure current federal efforts are better coordinated, improved with evidence-based models and closely monitored for results. He will also encourage “Abuse Deterrent Formulations” (“ADF opioids”) of prescription painkillers. While federal and state governments must play a critical role in fighting prescription drug abuse, the government cannot solve it all. The private sector must also be committed to joining this fight to achieve success, including coalitions driven by local communities and involving health, local law enforcement and social services professionals.
