Fear is no stranger to addiction, especially when it comes to someone that you love.
The biggest fear for most is waking up to “the call” at 2 a.m. Every day you worry if your loved one is safe. Every day you wonder where they are.
You ask yourself whom they are with and if they have eaten. When you get the call, your entire world stops and a new kind of worry begins. All you know is that someone you loved so desperately has left your life due to a drug overdose and you want to be able to honor that person’s life without the fear of stigma linked to substance use disorder.
