From other parts of the speech, it sounds like their plan is the same as before, put pressure on doctors who prescribe "excessive" amounts of opiods. Not sure if they plan to account for the fact that doctors who work with chronic conditions or those in pain management will always prescribe greater numbers of opiods than the average doctor.

Note: In case it wasn't clear, my comment about not being as bad as it sounds was referring to the title of this thread, Sessions wasn't saying all pain sufferers need to tough it out.
