The report is an update to previous 2016 Guidelines, but takes a step backwards in the national fight against the opioid crisis. In response, Dr. Kenneth A. Scheppke, Florida's Deputy Secretary for Health, wrote the response below. This was published in the Wall Street Journal on November 21, 2022.
