Addiction and Mental Illness is a Public Health Crisis

Addiction and Mental Illness is a Public Health Crisis
Let me first introduce myself, my name Matthew Taylor proud owner of TaylorMade Counseling & Consulting also I am your Addiction and Mental Health Rehabilitation Therapist. 
Overdose is now the #1 cause of accidental death in the United States, recently surpassing car accidents. Every four minutes a parent loses a child to addiction, and the rising cost of addiction now exceeds $400 billion a year.
Research shows that the stigma of addiction keeps people from getting the treatment needed and my goal is to help change that narrative. This is a fact 1 in 3 families are impacted by substance use disorder but only 1 in 10 ever seek treatment, while we are looking at numbers let me share one more number with you, well a little more than one more number. It is estimated to cost businesses more than $193 million annually due to employee substance use.
