Opioid Addiction and the Myth of Powerlessness

There is a belief that those of us with an opioid addiction, that we are powerless over our addiction. That is a myth. We are not powerless. But we appear powerless because the prohibition laws of this country rob us of our power.

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.
