Fighting Addiction (Part Two)

Drug abuse and addiction is a chronic, compulsive, relapsing disorder that almost always requires formal treatment. Drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death of Americans under age 50. In 2016, 62,000 Americans died from overdoses. By comparison, the figure was 4,000 in 1999.

During this episode of Family Comes First™, “Fighting Addiction (Part Two)”, we hear from Linda Ventura and Teri Kroll who both lost their son’s due to addiction. Since then, they have both become fierce advocates against drugs.
