Drugs and alcohol are destroying more lives everyday
According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism – 88,000 people die from alcohol related causes each year, making alcohol the 4th leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse -24.6 million Americans 12 years or older have used an illicit drug in the last month.
17.3 million are dependent on alcohol.
22.7 million need treatment for addiction and yet only 2.5 million are receiving it.
By the end of high school, 48.9% of our students have tried illicit drugs and 64% have used alcohol.
Abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs is not only costly to individuals, it’s costly to our Nation, exacting more than $700 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity, and health care.
Someone has to take action. Someone has to offer a solution to this epidemic.
Someone has got to reach in and rescue these valuable people who are suffering.
