Josh Cobb’s story is becoming all too common in the battle against drug addiction.
The 28-year-old recovering addict from northern Kentucky nearly died last year from a carfentanyl overdose.

His organs began shutting down.
He had to be put on dialysis and undergo two surgeries.

“I’m very grateful to be here,” Cobb said. “It really is a privilege because there was one point in time I wasn’t sure if I was still going to be here or not.”
