Christie Speaks About Prescription Drug Abuse
Recently, Gov. Christie attended the funeral of a close friend who died as a result of being addicted to prescription pain medication. After describing how deeply this affected him, he spoke out to urge New Jersey doctors to be more aware of the problem and to be more careful when prescribing drugs. In addition, he spoke about the new prescription drug monitoring program- a voluntary program that gives doctors access to a database of confidential information about a patients history with controlled dangerous substances. This is just one initiative that has been rolled out in an effort to stop prescription drug abuse and overdoses.
