Excerpt: How I Stopped Blaming Myself for My Son’s Overdose Death

A son's death and a mother's love. This is the story of Josh Olt who overdosed on heroin and died at the age of 16. This is the story of the mother he left behind. It is not a story of "moving on," or "getting over it." For those of you who have lost someone you love to overdose, you know those things don't happen. This is, instead, a story of disenfranchised grief, of self-blame, of what-ifs, of should-haves, and how to find a way to let go of that guilt.

GRASP Retreat 2018 Post Event Update

The 2018 GRASP Retreat and Conference was a success both in numbers and in personal participation. We reconnected with old friends and met new ones and we learned so much! It was wonderful. Thank you to our planning committee, amazing speakers and our participants.
