|Billy Before Overdose|
I found this among them. It was saved from a Facebook Group post some months back and is definitely worth mentioning and of course they said share it.
This is National Drug Facts Week.
What better way to end the week than to tell you that this addiction isn't a fairy tale and to share something that is real about heroin and addiction.
Heroin addiction can and will kill you and if it doesn't it can
leave you in a state of mind in which your brain no longer functions the way it used to. That is what this post is about.
This folks, is one of the harshest realties of the disease of addiction in particular addiction to heroin. This is the disease in which so many addicts fight each and everyday as well as those of us on this side of the addiction. We who love an addict also fight each and every day of our lives.
This is a reminder to many of us that but for the Grace of God go each and every one of us. Although our son lived a time in active heroin and opioid abuse, he chose to live. He chose recovery.
So many others have lost their loved ones to this disease, to overdose and to heroin. Then there are those whose family member lived, but will not come back to them functioning the way that they used to.

For Rhonda, her brother Billy and for her family I pray for healing for you and your family. I am sharing this as part of Drug Facts Week so that others know this is the harsh reality of loving an addict. Nothing is promised to any of us but when we love someone struggling with this disease this can also be the reality. To anyone struggling with addiction today, please reach out to someone. If you love someone struggling with disease, if you have done everything you can, please reach out for help.
