President Obama And Macklemore Talk Addiction (Video)

In President Obama’s weekly address to the nation, he was joined by popular rapper and songwriter, Macklemore. The pair spoke openly about the disease of addiction and the need for more funding of treatment programs to help our nation recover from the opiate epidemic.

Obama Address

As mentioned by President Obama in his address, since the year 2000, deaths from opioids have tripled. And now drug overdoses take more lives every year than traffic accidents. Addiction does not discriminate – from the poor to the wealthy – anyone can suffer from this disease.

When we as a nation make this conversation public, we take great strides in breaking the long-held stigma of addiction, and show those suffering that there is hope and help – all they have to do is ask.
