Since the year 2000, almost 1 million drug overdoses have resulted in death.
26% of all arrests in America right now, are the result of drug offenses.
“Well, brother Bob, that’s the illegal side of things. The criminals and such…”
Really??? How about this: 6% of Americans over the age of 12 abuse PRESCRIPTION DRUGS each and every year… that’s over 16 million people!
12% of prescription drug users are addicted… and I’ll have more to say on that in a minute…
82%... 4 out of every 5 prescriptions filled, are for opioids. Think about that!

Folks, speaking from experience, drug addiction can take many forms. For Pastor Bob, it was because of pain management from my injuries. Thank GOD I was delivered from that.
