We belong to a club that none of us ever wanted to join.
We are the parents and siblings of young people who died too soon because of drugs. We are ordinary people who could be your neighbors, your co-workers or members of your faith community. We loved our children and tried to be the best parents we could be. But drugs took them from us, and some days the grief is still unbearable. Drug abuse is an equal opportunity killer. It is not confined to one kind of neighborhood, one socioeconomic group, or one kind of kid. Drugs simply do not discriminate.
We are reaching out to parents like us in hopes that all of our lives will become a little easier.We established the Courage to Speak Support Group in 2002 and hundreds of parents and other family members have walked though our door.
