MEET THE FOUNDER OF HIGH ON HOPE

MY TESTIMONY

My name is Tim Craft and I was addicted to opiates for 12 years. I lived for so many years searching for my identity in drugs. My addiction escalated quickly and before I knew it, I was shooting heroin every day. On April 6, 2013 I lost my sister to a drug overdose. That event sent me deeper into my addiction to cope with my pain. Ultimately, I too overdosed in February of 2014. Just after that, a friend of mine reached out to me. He wanted to see me get the help I needed. He introduced me to Jesus and on March 1st, 2014, I found freedom from addiction. I gave my heart to Jesus Christ and entered a faith-based recovery program called DreamLife with Eddie James Ministries. I eventually became the director of that program and God put it on my heart to start High On Hope Ministries to help combat the addiction crisis in our region. I have a passion to reach those who are lost in addiction and point them toward freedom. The love I felt from God, healed my heart and led me on a mission to bring freedom to this generation.

HOW DID AMERICA GET IN THE GRIPS OF THIS EPIDEMIC?

THE OPIOID CRISIS IN OUR NATION

This class of drugs, which includes prescription painkillers, heroin, and fentanyl, is constantly making news because it has become a prevalent part of modern American life. The opioid epidemic doesn’t discriminate by gender, race, or socioeconomic status, and statistics suggest that you or someone you love are already directly affected by it.

This issue has become a public health crisis with devastating consequences including increases in opioid misuse and related overdoses, as well as the rising incidence of neonatal abstinence syndrome due to opioid use and misuse during pregnancy. The increase in injection drug use has also contributed to the spread of infectious diseases including HIV and hepatitis C. As seen throughout the history of medicine, science, and faith can be an important part of the solution in resolving such a crisis.

116 PEOPLE DIE EACH DAY FROM OPIOID OVERDOSE

In the late 1990s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. This subsequently led to widespread diversion and misuse of these medications before it became clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive. Opioid overdose rates began to increase. In 2015, more than 33,000 Americans died as a result of an opioid overdose, including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicitly manufactured fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid.That same year, an estimated 2 million people in the United States suffered from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers, and 591,000 suffered from a heroin use disorder (not mutually exclusive).

40% OF OPIOID DEATHS INVOLVE A PRESCRIPTION

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioids killed more than 42,000 people in 2016 and 40% of those deaths involve a prescription opioid.

The construction industry has one of the highest injury rates when compared to other industries and opioids have commonly been prescribed to construction workers to treat the pain caused by these occupational injuries.  Since use of opioids has led to addiction and overdose deaths, it is important for workers to understand the risks and alternatives.
