 Description: Deaths due to drug related overdose in the United States are 115 people every day. This number has quadrupled over the past 15 years. Thousands of families are affected by the drug epidemic in this country, and it is a serious national crisis. The parents, siblings, friends, and loved ones left behind are faced with many unanswerable questions, made worse by the stigma associated with this kind of death. The truth is that addiction is a disease, just like cancer. And while that disease leaves devastating loss in its wake, those who grieve are not alone, and there are people and resources to help. With testimony from addiction experts, and family members who have walked through this particular loss, Among the Many offers hope for anyone grieving the death of a person due to opioid overdose.
What addiction is, stigma surrounding addiction and death from overdose, feelings of guilt and relief, things that can help and more.
