More Sad News

I am sad today again. A week or so ago I told you about a gentleman that disappeared to Atlantic City. Today I received the following emails. We had a referral about a month ago for a young lady struggling with opiate addiction. We did all we could on our end. When she chose to continue in her addiction and not come to our center we referred her to a recovered addict for help. Life is but a flicker. Death awaits us all, it is a fact. For the alcoholic/addict there are three deaths; the walking slow death of addiction, dying tragically due to addiction and of course the death that we all will one day encounter. Personally, I chose dying with dignity with no regrets.

Unfortunately what you will read is sad. If you know someone struggling, tell them you love them and tell them there is hope. There is a better way.

Much Love,

Dan,
I just opened my mail and this is what I woke up to this morning:

“Hey, I’m not sure if you know this or not….. 🙁 oooo boy!

You know that girl Lindsay you were talking to about a month ago. You asked me to talk to her. Well I’m really sad to say that she od’ed (Overdosed) and died last week. I can’t believe it. I don’t know much about it, but i do know she died due to heroin.

Jp”

I talked to Lindsay for hours one night then passed her to another addict
who lived close to her. This disease is so insidious and cruel. It takes the lives of people with
such good hearts. It takes people away from us who make the world a brighter, better place to live.

Addiction smothers and kills people who have so much potential for love
and giving to others, so sad. I’ve been helping addicts for a long time and I still feel the loss when one falls on the front line of our battle against a common enemy.

The only thing worse than being wrong is being right.
