The consequences of the opioid crisis reaches into every community, affecting every family and church.  We all know someone who has suffered under this scourge and it demands a response. We must not remain silent. The opioid crisis is an epidemic that demands further engagement by the church.

If we are going to rescue those ensnared by opioids, churches must be willing to offer help while working to transform the heart. This starts by breaking the silence and learning how to practically love those struggling with addiction.
