Over 100,000 Americans die each year from opioid overdoses. One of them was 21-year-old Garrett Holman.

His father, Don Holman, has worked ceaselessly to educate the public about the scourge of opioids and how they affected his family.

“This tragedy ripped our family apart,” Holman says. “At this point in time, after losing my son, no matter what I accomplish or what I do, I don’t feel like I’ll ever win.”

“I can lose less if I can do something,” he says. “It may be talking to you today, it may be testifying in front of Congress. It may be talking to my Uber driver on the way home and [finding] out that they have a child going through something, and I can share just something to encourage them or give them some guidance.”

Holman joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share his family’s story and tell you how you can help if someone in your life suffers from an opioid addiction.
