Acting to End the Opioid Epidemic

“People in recovery are warriors, of a sort. … We cannot do it alone.  We have to find other warriors.”

This is the reminder that Nick Yacoub shares with all of us. 

With drug-caused deaths involving opioids on the rise, stories like Nick’s – a drug addiction survivor from Rep. Barbara Comstock’s (R-VA) local area – are growing more and more common.

In the People’s House – as we continue to pursue a bright future, where every American can rise up and take control of their version of the American Dream – we will soon act to help end the cycle of opioid addiction.

As Nick puts it, addiction is an “equal opportunity destroyer of lives.”

We must act now.
