Four years ago, I lost my brother to a heroin overdose. Since his death, I have tried to be supportive of others suffering from this horrific disease. It took me a long time to realize there wasn’t much I could do while I was still suffering from PTSD. At first, I wanted people to see my project and realize that addicts are just like normal people, but what’s normal? Addiction can consume anyone, turning them into someone we don’t even know. It takes a strong heart and a lot of faith to see past someone’s addiction and remember who they really are. In my case, he was my brother, my best friend.
