Several weeks have passed since Captain Michael Zohab of the Richmond Police showed up at the LCC office but I am still reminded of how much impact a collective group of people can have on each other. A mantra that comes to mind when thinking of his talk is, “You Matter. You Are Worthy.” It also reminds us that we do not have to struggle alone. Nationally, 78 people die annually of an opioid overdose. In Virginia, 3 people die every day from an overdose.
There were several individuals at the office that night to find hope from parents of loved ones who are struggling with substance abuse to individuals who were struggling with their recovery.
