I'm terribly sorry to hear this. I have 2 brothers who are going through the same thing, and our mother died from an opiate overdose. It's painful to watch.

Good luck.

Brian,

Today he is clean and has been since last summer. It's a great joy for us and we celebrate one day at a time.

Next week is the national Medicine Abuse Project. That week it is all about prescription medicine abuse. This is an epidemic with young people. More young people die from prescription medicine abuse that ALL of the deaths from heroin and cocaine combined. No one is immune from this monster.

I ask you all to please take 11 minutes of your time and watch this video PARENTS360 Rx: http://pact360.org/programs/parents360rx After you see this talk to your kids about drugs or forward it to someone that has kids and needs to talk.

Talking to your kids about drugs is hard. Studies have been conducted and found that most parents would rather talk to their kids about sex than drugs. Simple reason, they don't know what to say beyond, just say no. If you need help to talk, what do you say, read this post in my blog: http://parentsofanaddict.blogspot.co...or-please.html
Hit the link and you will find information on how to talk about drugs with your child. You can even download a free toolkit to help you.

All I ask is take the time to talk, please. You don't want to experience what I lived for 7 years.

For those that are interested or know someone dealing with the addiction of a loved one or friend The Partnership at Drugfree.org has posted 2 more of my essays. One is about how to "detach with love" and another is about being the parent of an addict in recovery.

I hope they help.
