This is what drug overdose looks like. And it’s often not what people expect. Drug addiction cuts across all racial lines and socioeconomic groups as does mental illness. I know all these parents. There are countless others I don’t know but my heart goes out to all of you.
Today’s #griefheart is in memory and in honor of the young men and women who have struggled from mental illness or addiction and died from a drug overdose. No stigma or passing judgment is allowed here. Keep talking about drug addiction!
