Did you know that drug overdoses are the leading cause of death in Ohio? Drug addiction is tearing families apart and devastating communities in Ohio. Too many are unable to achieve their God-given purpose because of this disease. We need to fight back.
Recently, Rob heard stories of recovery from men and women in Toledo. Rob spent his time in Congress working to fight drug abuse, collaborating on a half-dozen bipartisan laws to help with drug prevention and treatment. Rob founded the Coalition for a Drug-Free Cincinnati, and also wrote the Drug-Free Communities Act which helped launch 2,000 community anti-drug coalitions around the country.
Rob is now fighting to pass the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, legislation which will work to combat the prescription drug and heroin addiction crisis. Rob has made progress, but there's still a lot of work left to do to help families, help communities, and help people get their lives back on track.
