My son died on February 18, 2017 just 4 days after his 24th birthday. He was addicted to heroin for 6 very long and awful years. Wrecked cars, jail sentences, hospital stays (all attached to ventilators), felonies, at least 15 rehabs, probation. During the last 3 weeks before he died, he was working and everyone was stunned at how well he was doing. I told him everyday how much I loved him and how very proud of him I was. He was paid on 2/17/17 and I found him dead the next day. Police found needles and heroin. I am beyond broken and miss him more than words can adequately say.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I can’t imagine the heartbreak, and want you to know that our prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for having the courage to speak out about your daughter’s substance use. Your voice matters as we advocate for better treatment, and hopefully a cure, so that other families don’t have to go through this pain and lose more beautiful children like your daughter.

    I lost my daughter at 20 on 2-6-17 after returning home from a 90 day out of state rehab. We were all amazed an shocked at the transformation of her. She was absolutely beautiful and glowing when we picked her up at the airport. Physically and spiritually, she was healed, but not mentally. The journals she left behind stated alot about the mental torture she was going through over heroin. Very few truly escape this addiction alive. I have resigned myself to the fact that her pain was too much to bear on this earth and now she is pain and struggle free in Heaven and I have to bear this pain for her. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
