ACOUB: My name is Nick Yacoub, and I'm a person in long-term recovery from the disease of addiction. And what that means for me is that I haven't used any drugs, including alcohol, in over eight and a half years. And as a result of that, my life's gotten a whole lot better. Addiction as a disease is one of the leading health crises in America. It's nice to have someone like Barbara Comstock who understands that this is such an epidemic, that this is such a problem. I think people in the recovery community absolutely have a friend in Congresswoman Barbara Comstock. She has been there to champion the fight against addiction as a disease. Barbara Comstock cares so much about this issue because she sees it rip apart our communities. She is actually out there with people on a regular basis, educating herself about the issues and then turning around and finding real-world solutions. And she pulls people in from both sides of the aisle. Barbara Comstock is fighting for education and prevention to give our families hope and to give people with this disease a chance. Barbara Comstock cares. She's recently put together two task forces on the heroin and opiate epidemic. She's been boots on the ground with educating and prevention and treatment. Barbara Comstock is a warrior for the recovery community. She has been doing the work out there to make sure that we have the resources we need to fight the disease of addiction, so we have a future generation of sons and daughters that aren't as impacted by this disease. Barbara Comstock is offering bipartisan solutions to the heroin and opiate crisis. Barbara Comstock listens and gets things done, and that's why we need to keep her in Congress.
