Drugs are tearing our family apart

Posted on 2/5/2019 by Greg Yoder

The opioid crisis is out of control. More than 72-thousand people died from drug overdoses in 2017. Even young people. If you have a drug addict teen or young adult in your house my heart goes out to you. You’re probably tired of the lies, money disappearing, the car accidents, and their denial that there’s a problem. As a parent we struggle with anger, fear, sadness, and heartbreak. We know in our heart that God can rescue our kids. In our heads we wonder if it’ll ever happen. We wonder, “what did we do wrong?” But the reality is THEY made decision, not you. Sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom for our kids to want help. Pray. Love them. But don’t do this alone.
