About Losing Someone to Addiction

During the summer of 2014 I came to realize my firstborn son had been addicted to heroin for a year.

What do you do?

Sound familiar? Remember finding out your loved one is an addict? It feels terrifying.

I spent the next year doing everything I could to assist with his opioid addiction recovery and to keep him alive without allowing him into my home.

It wasn’t enough.

On June 9, 2015, two police officers came to my front door and delivered the terrible news–they had found my son’s body.

I decided to turn my grief into a springboard for assisting others who are grieving loved ones who were addicted. That’s how LosingSomeoneToAddiction.com was born. This website is about offering you options for coping with the terrible hand you have been dealt. May you find hope as well.
