Let’s not forget that this time of year may not be so joyous for families who have lost loved ones to an addiction. Many more families are still entangled in the web of an addiction from a family member and are still searching for support and help.
According to Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC), during January 1, 2011 – June 30, 2015 there were 4,707 overdose deaths in the state of Kentucky. Sadly, that number has continued to grow. Compound that number by the number of family members touched by each life lost and chances are you know a family that is suffering this holiday season.
Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during this holiday season.
