“I know people who suffer from opioid addiction. Some people have struggled with addition their whole life. Others became addicts from pharmaceutical use. Some say the border crisis is to blame for the opioid crisis, but the truth is, addiction is the issue. I believe our best way to combat the opioid crisis is to help addicts heal. Rehab centers and foster care organizations are overwhelmed and overflowing. Addiction not only affects the addict, but also their family, friends, work, and community. We must combat addiction to truly solve the opioid crisis.”
