Senator Durbin: Trumpcare Would Inflame Opioid Crisis in DuPage County

DOWNERS GROVE –(ENEWSPF)--May 26, 2017.  In the midst of the opioid crisis, President Trump’s budget and plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would greatly diminish access to substance abuse treatment in the western suburbs, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin said today in a meeting at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital. Last year, there were 78 opioid overdose deaths in DuPage County, a 53 percent increase over the previous year. President Trump’s proposed budget would exacerbate these problems by cutting programs that help combat the opioid epidemic, including $130 million in cuts to Centers for Disease Control . . .
