Drug poisoning mortality more than doubled in the United States from 2000 to 2015; poisoning mortality involving opioids more than tripled.1,2 Increases in poisonings have been reported to have reduced life expectancy for non-Hispanic white individuals in the United States from 2000 to 2014.3


We’re losing more folks to the opiate crisis now than we were losing at the height of the AIDS crisis.  We need to revert to our God-given roots & culture.  These epidemics are modern-day plagues upon us.  Why can’t we, as a society recognize this?
