Opioid Epidemic. What do those words mean to you? Is it something you have heard about on the news but has never touched you or the lives of anyone you know? Our guest today once felt the same way.

We tackle a serious issue today, hearing from one mother who has two sons, one of whom she lost to opioid addiction just over a year ago. Dawn Trout is an accomplished professional who never imagined her life would be turned upside down.

Today she shares her story, helps us to understand this powerful addiction, and challenges us to learn more about something that is silently killing close to 100,000 Americans each year. Join us today to gain the best weapon you can have against this insidious disease. Information.
