In York, Governor Wolf Addresses Pennsylvania’s Opioid Epidemic Press Release, Substance Use Disorder York, PA – Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Representative Kevin Schreiber, as well as local officials, law enforcement, and health care professionals, at a roundtable in York city today to discuss local and statewide efforts to lead the nation in combating the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania.In an effort to confront this epidemic collaboratively, Governor Wolf is conducting roundtables statewide to discuss the initiatives of his administration, the state legislature, county agencies, treatment centers, hospitals, and medical schools. The Wolf Administration is eager to engage in these local conversations in order to listen to local officials about the challenges that they are facing.“Fighting Pennsylvania’s opioid and heroin epidemic is a top priority for my administration,” said Governor Wolf. “These roundtables are an opportunity to work collaboratively with the General Assembly and community leaders to ensure Pennsylvania leads the nation in the fight to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use crisis.”Governor Wolf was joined by a number of other state and local leaders at the event at Martin Library location of the York County Library System. Attendees included PA Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel, York County Coroner Pam Gay, District Attorney Thomas Kearney, Senior Deputy Prosecutor David Sunday, and members of the York County Heroin Task Force.“The problem with heroin and its associated crime are growing in York County and across Pennsylvania,” Schreiber said. “I applaud Governor Wolf for being a leader on this issue by hosting roundtables across the state. He is hearing directly from those on the ground fighting back this epidemic, what is working and what is not so that he can put the full resources of our Commonwealth towards solutions. If we all work together, at the local and state levels, I am hopeful that we can combat the heroin epidemic.”“York County has been a leader in many ways over the last two years in trying to address the prescription drug and heroin epidemic,” said Senator Wagner. “Two years ago, Chief Deputy Prosecutor Dave Sunday from the District Attorney’s Office and Coroner Pam Gay founded the York County Heroin Task Force, which I have served on from the beginning. Since then, this multifaceted group has accomplished a great deal, particularly with educating the community. But there are roadblocks preventing more people from getting the treatment they need, so I am glad the governor and his administration have chosen to come to York to hear the concerns we all have.”The Wolf Administration hopes that these discussions are just the beginning of a larger conversation with both Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate as well as local officials, law enforcement, emergency responders, and health care professionals.“I look forward to continue working collaboratively with the General Assembly and community leaders to ensure Pennsylvania leads the nation in the fight to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic,” said Governor Wolf. “The magnitude of the addiction and overdose death epidemic in Pennsylvania is shocking: at least seven Pennsylvanians die every day from a drug overdose. With nearly 2,500 overdose deaths in Pennsylvania in 2014 and estimates that the 2015 total will be higher, a collaborative effort on the federal, state, and local levels is crucial in combating this crisis.”Some of the administration’s initiatives in the fight against heroin include: signing a statewide standing order for naloxone, making it possible for all Pennsylvanians to access this life-saving drug; equipping the Pennsylvania State Police with naloxone so that those troopers who are first on the scene of an overdose can have another tool on-hand during these emergencies; partnering with Adapt Pharma to make Narcan available to public high schools across the state at no cost; developing the ABC-MAP prescription drug monitoring program to detect and prevent prescription fraud and abuse, which contribute to addiction; and appointing a director for the state’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Office, who will work to ensure that the PDMP meets its goal of assisting healthcare professionals in identifying patients that would benefit from treatment.In an effort to curtail drug addiction and curb the supply of excess drugs that can be used illicitly, the Department of Health is leading an effort to build upon the opioid prescribing guidelines already created, including specialty specific guidelines for emergency department providers, dentists, obstetricians and gynecologists, and pharmacists. These guidelines give healthcare providers direction for safe and effective pain relief practices, with greater emphasis on non-opioid therapies and greater caution to prevent addiction and diversion. In addition, the DOH recently joined dozens of healthcare organizations, medical experts, and consumer advocacy groups in signing petitions requesting changes to federal pain management requirements that are believed to foster dangerous prescribing practices.The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs is developing the “warm hand-off” process “warm hand-off” process, whereby overdose survivors would be taken directly from the emergency department to a licensed drug treatment provider, as well as Pennsylvania’s Prescription Drug Take-Back Program. This program helps communities properly dispose of unused prescriptions at any of the 400+ police station locations across Pennsylvania. To date, approximately 40,000 pounds of prescription drugs have been taken back and destroyed.Governor Wolf’s decision to expand Medicaid eligibility in Pennsylvania under the Affordable Care Act has greatly increased access to treatment services for hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians.Finally, Governor Wolf’s proposed 2016-17 budget provides more than $34 million to treat more than 11,250 new individuals with substance use disorder. The Department of Human Services will provide 25 new Opioid Use Disorder Centers of Excellence for individuals with substance use disorder, providing medication-assisted treatment and appropriate wraparound services, such as cognitive-based therapies. After this first phase of implementation, there will be a push for 25 more facilities that would have the capacity to treat 22,500 individuals total.# # # SHARE Email Facebook Twitter May 12, 2016

RelatedPosts Ajagu in Canada initiates ‘One Billion Souls for Christ Project’ Tokyo 2020 organisers want ‘Super Mario’ Abe to remain involved Buhari congratulates Nigerian on his ministerial appointment in Canada Canada have said they will not compete at the Olympic and Paralympic Games should they be held this year as other nations also plan for a one-year postponement of Tokyo 2020. The Canadian Olympic Committee and Canadian Paralympic Committee said they had made the “difficult decision” not to travel to Japan in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic. Their statement followed an announcement from the International Olympic Committee on Sunday, which said a final verdict on Tokyo 2020 will be reached within four weeks. This was the first acknowledgement of a potential postponement, which now seems like the most likely scenario. IOC and Tokyo 2020 officials will use the four weeks window to study different options regarding a postponement of the Games, with complete cancellation said “not to be on the agenda”. The IOC, who had previously insisted that plans for the Games were progressing as scheduled, have changed course after the virus crisis worsened around the world and amid pressure from both National Olympic Committees and athletes. An announcement from the Australian Olympic Committee also told their athletes to prepare for a Games in 2021 as a team for this year “could not be assembled”. United States, Britain, New Zealand and The Netherlands are among other NOCs who have already addressed their athletes during a time of unique crisis for the Olympic Movement. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Opening Ceremony currently remains scheduled for July 24. Canada became the first major Olympic nation to confirm they would not compete this year. “The COC and CPC urgently call on the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to postpone the Games for one year and we offer them our full support in helping navigate all the complexities that rescheduling the Games will bring,” a statement said. “While we recognise the inherent complexities around a postponement, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our athletes and the world community. “This is not solely about athlete health – it is about public health. “With COVID-19 and the associated risks, it is not safe for our athletes, and the health and safety of their families and the broader Canadian community for athletes to continue training towards these Games. “In fact, it runs counter to the public health advice which we urge all Canadians to follow. “The COC and CPC reviewed the letter and news release sent Sunday by the IOC. “We are thankful to the IOC for its assurance that it will not be cancelling the Tokyo 2020 Games and appreciative that it understands the importance of accelerating its decision-making regarding a possible postponement. “We also applaud the IOC for acknowledging that safeguarding the health and wellness of nations and containing the virus must be our paramount concern. “We are in the midst of a global health crisis that is far more significant than sport. “The COC and CPC would like to thank our athletes, partners and the Canadian sport community for their patience and for lending us their voices during these unprecedented times. “We remain hopeful that the IOC and IPC will agree with the decision to postpone the Games as a part of our collective responsibility to protect our communities and work to contain the spread of the virus.”Tags: CanadaCanadian Olympic CommitteeInternational Olympic CommitteeIOCIPCOlympic GamesParalympic GamesPostponementTokyo 2020
The heavy defeat follows on from a 6-0 thrashing at the Etihad Stadium in November when Andre Villas-Boas was still in charge of Tottenham, and Sherwood firmly believes the Sky Blues are destined for their second title in three seasons. “We’ve played the champions today, without question in my opinion,” he said. “Unfortunately for everyone they play, they don’t just score one and shut up shop, they keep coming. If anyone is going to win the league you want a team like this to do it because they entertain. “It’s not great for an opposition manager, believe me, but they just put you to the sword. That’s how football should be played in my opinion. “They’ve got to win it now, they’ve won it before but Manchester United are the champions now. But I just think these guys are on a different level to anything in the league.” The penalty decision six minutes into the second half appeared to be made by assistant referee Scott Ledger, who had flagged Michael Dawson offside after the Spurs skipper thought he had levelled at 1-1. Sherwood felt referee Andre Marriner’s original decision to award a corner rather than a penalty was correct but conceded his side were struggling to contain City with a full quota of players. “I think Andre got it right in the first place when he called it as a corner,” Sherwood added. Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood felt his side were beaten by the uncrowned Barclays Premier League champions as Manchester City thrashed them 5-1 to complete a double of impressive victories over the north London club to move top of the table. “Unfortunately for us, the linesman decided that Andre got it wrong and he’s given a penalty there. I think Danny’s making a last-ditch tackle so he’s having to lunge in there a bit. He clearly wins the ball – I think we will appeal. “It made a difference to the scoreline but they were excellent, weren’t they? You’ve got to hold your hands up. Even before the sending-off, they come at you from all angles and they are the best team in the league by a country mile.” City manager Manuel Pellegrini disagreed with Sherwood’s interpretation of the spot-kick and felt Marriner was right to dismiss Rose. “I don’t think it was a big decision because before the red card we missed at least five clear chances to score in the first half,” he said. “If we review the first 45 minutes I don’t remember just one chance for Tottenham, I think our team was the best team from the beginning. “If you ask me it was a clear penalty and a clear red card because he was the last man. The sending-off was not the thing that changed the game, the game was over and completed from the beginning for our team.” Aguero, who scored his seventh goal in five games since returning from a calf injury, was substituted with another muscular problem – with Pellegrini admitting he is unsure if it will sideline the Argentina forward for any length of time. “We will see tomorrow with the doctor,” he added. “He has an injury in his hamstring and we will see how serious it is. We don’t have an indication until tomorrow.” Press Association Sergio Aguero had put the visitors ahead at White Hart Lane before Danny Rose was sent off for Spurs, with Yaya Toure converting the resulting penalty. Edin Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic and Vincent Kompany also got on the scoresheet in the mauling, with Etienne Capoue scoring a consolation for the hosts.
Press Association The 53-year-old is expected to become the new Palace boss after the Eagles agreed compensation with Newcastle for their former midfielder. And he watched from the stands as Yannick Bolasie wasted the visitors’ best chance when he hit the bar with just Brad Guzan to beat. Aston Villa and Crystal Palace fought out a bore 0-0 draw in front of the watching Alan Pardew. Julian Speroni saved well from Alan Hutton and Christian Benteke but it was a dour game between two limited sides. It continued Villa’s goal worries – Paul Lambert’s side having scored just 11 times in 20 games – but Pardew would have been pleased by Palace’s gritty outing. The point could not lift them out of the Barclays Premier League drop zone while Villa, who have won just twice in 16 games, moved up to 12th. The banned Fabian Delph was replaced by Leandro Bacuna while Jores Okore came in for Ciaran Clark and Gabby Agbonlahor was back after suspension for Charles N’Zogbia. Mile Jedinak was out for Palace after linking up with the Australia squad for the Asian Cup and was replaced by Martin Kelly. Villa started brightly and Benteke forced Speroni into a low save inside the first minute and the returning Agbonlahor then skied over. The hosts pinned Palace back and only a fine save from Speroni denied Hutton from point blank range after Aly Cissokho cashed in on Adrian Mariappa’s indecision. But Villa suffered a blow after 15 minutes when skipper Ron Vlaar limped off with a suspected calf injury and was replaced by Clark. And the visitors should have gone ahead after a minute later when Bolasie blew a golden chance. The midfielder capitalised on a lucky break of the ball to run the length of the Villa half, leaving Clark for dead, but only managed to smash the bar with just Guzan to beat. It was the last flashpoint of a dour half though with the teams cancelling each other out. Both lacked the creativity and nous to raise the tempo of a game played at pedestrian pace. Palace had scored just two goals in six matches while Villa had netted just once in their last four outings prior to the game so the half-time stalemate was no surprise. Tom Cleverley’s shot was deflected wide after Villa were jeered off at the break and Benteke planted a header wide as they tried to inject some much-needed excitement. Cissokho then produced a vital tackle on James McArthur on the hour as the sides continued to cancel each other out. But Benteke should have made it 1-0 with 19 minutes left when he arrowed a 12-yard effort over after collecting Carlos Sanchez’s pass. It summed up the game and Speroni punched Bacuna’s free kick away with four minutes left in the final lacklustre action.
For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Sao Paulo: Neymar used a sponsor’s ad to admit he exaggerated some of his reactions after being fouled during the World Cup in Russia.The video, published Sunday and broadcast on several Brazilian TV networks, features the striker accepting criticism for the first time and promising to pick himself up.The striker scored two goals in the tournament and was not too disappointing until his team got knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-finals, but fans and players have spoken much more about his theatrics on the pitch, which included dives, rolling and frequent arguing with referees.“You may think I exaggerate. And sometimes I do exaggerate. But the truth is I suffer on the pitch,” Neymar said in the ad sponsored by personal care products maker Gillette.Since Brazil’s elimination, Neymar only spoke about the defeat in Russia via Instagram. In the ad he tried to explain why he did not speak right after the Belgium game, which fostered even more criticism of his behavior at home.“When I leave without giving interviews it is not because I only want the victory laurels. It is because I still haven’t learned to disappoint you. When I look impolite, it is not because I am a spoiled kid. It is because I have not learned how to be frustrated,” the player said.Neymar said his football style is akin to a boy’s that “sometime charms the world, sometimes irritates the whole world.”“I fight to keep that boy alive inside of me, but not on the pitch,” he said.“You may think I fall too much,” Neymar continued. “But the truth is I did not fall. I fell apart,” he said, in a reference to Brazil’s quarter-finals elimination against Belgium.“That hurts more than any step on an operated ankle.”The piece ends with Neymar’s pledge to be a new man less than a month after Brazil was knocked out of the World Cup.“I took long to accept your criticism. I took long to look at myself in the mirror and become a new man,” Neymar said.“I fell, but only who falls can pick himself up.” Neymar ends his ad asking fans to make a choice. You can keep casting stones. Or throw these stones away and help me stand. When I stand, all of Brazil stands with me,” he said.On July 20, at his first public appearance after the World Cup, Neymar did not talk about his exaggerations. Instead, he said he wasn’t upset with critics that made fun of his theatrics in Russia.
