BROTHER JOHN ELVING MINISTRIES
Losing a loved one is not easy. Over the years I have lost dozens of friends to overdose. Each time it happens I regret not spending more time with them. Grieving is a process that takes time. The Lord gives us grace and comfort during our struggles.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9-10
When I lost my brother I joined a support group with Moms Stop the Harm. It helped me connect with others going through the same emotions. I do not endorse some of their policies however they honored the memory of my brother and expressed love to me and my family.
THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE FOR SOMEONE IN ADDICTION.
You are not alone. The first step is to reach out for help. I have created this page to give you some resources.
If I can help in any way let me know.

WHAT IS THE OPIOID CRISIS?
You’ve no doubt heard the term opioid epidemic. The opioid epidemic is also known as the opioid crisis. It has become a hot-button issue in the media. However, many may not know what the crisis actually is.
The opioid epidemic specifically refers to the growing number of deaths and hospitalizations from opioids, including prescriptions and illicit drugs. In recent years, death rates from these drugs have ramped up to
over 40,000 a year, or 115 a day.
(Canada continues to struggle with historic rates of fatal and non-fatal drug overdoses.)
Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, largely due to the opioid epidemic.
