Addiction effects everything & everyone.

HEALTH

Drug overdoses kill more than 64,000 people per year, and the nation’s life expectancy has fallen for two years in a row. Mental Health issues such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder are on the rise.

CRIME

Most people who suffer addiction are victims of sexual abuse, child neglect, and mental illness. When addicted to a substance, people will do anything they can to feed that fire. Theft, arson, rape, and shootings are on the rise as a result.

CHILDREN & FAMILIES

Children of addicts are 8x more likely to develop an addiction. Siblings of addicts are 4x more likely. Families with addicted spouses are 80% more likely to end up divorced. Parents of an addict are 2x more likely to end in divorce.

 

SAFETY

Approximately 7.1 million adults in the United States are under some form of criminal justice supervision. The large increase in the criminal justice population reflects in part tougher laws and penalties for drug offenses. These results will yield larger taxes for individuals

LIFE EXPECTANCY

Accidental drug overdoses account for more than a third of the unintentional injury deaths, and intentional drug overdoses account for about a tenth of the suicides. Financial struggles, a widening income gap and divisive politics are all casting a pall over many Americans. As a result, the average life expectancy has declined by 2 months for U.S. newborns.

PRODUCTIVITY

For the first time in history, people between the ages of 18-34 have attended more funerals then weddings. This means a decline in future young families, working adults, and productivity in our community.
