In 2014, over 21 million Americans age 12 and older battled substance abuse. Tragically, only 1 in 10 with a substance abuse problem receives the help that they need. There’s clearly a drug epidemic in this country. Families are being devastated by the opioid and heroin addiction, but there is hope!
On this episode of Family Comes First, “Fighting Addiction: Part 1”, we hear from a parent, Eileen Boyle whose son, Timothy is fighting addiction, and her friend and advocate against drugs, Teri Kroll. Also on the show, we learn about Talbot House, a resource for those struggling with addiction from the program coordinator, Toni DeFelice.
