There is real help and real hope happening every single day, particularly for kids, who are innocent victims in this drug crisis.  They are traumatized when they don’t have food or running water because their parents’ addiction has robbed them of their basic needs.  And they are traumatized when they see their parents using drugs, overdosing, and dying.
