About the Author
"Heroin Is Killing Our Children" is a handbook for families navigating through the throes of opioid/heroin addiction and recovery. This book will equip the reader with up-to-date information providing life-saving knowledge and strategies available to support loved ones out of addiction and into recovery.
On March 4th, 2014, the doorbell rang and two detectives stood at my door asking to come inside to tell me that my precious 20-year old son, Davis, was found dead in his car from a suspected drug overdose. That night forever changed my life. A senseless death that I was so unprepared for should have never happened. It became a mission and a ministry to make sure that I did everything in my power to prevent this tragic fate from happening to one more family.
This book is filled with "Constructive Acts" that can be carried out to prevent drug addiction, promote awareness of the effects of opioids and heroin, educate about the latest drug therapies, antidotes, and statistics, as well as expose emotions and raw feelings that come after losing a child to this monster. I began with a one or two sentence "Act" that would be important in preventing drug addiction in general. As I progressed further into the book and into my journey, my heart began to open up and the walls of grief and desperation to save others came tumbling down.
