The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a number of bills backed by members of both parties to take on the growing problem of heroin addiction and improper painkiller use in the U.S. Lawmakers are expected to pass other bills this week to combat drug use.

Critics say the package of bills won’t do much because they aren’t backed by federal funding. Some want Congress to provide for more than $1 billion to back new measures that would take on the epidemic.

Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) wrote an op-ed for noting the problems rural communities have with opioid addiction, saying 78 people a day are dying from opioid abuse. He warned that there is no silver bullet for taking on drug addiction.
