Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Opioid Overdoses and Advocacy

In the last month Denise has traveled across the country to listen and be heard regarding the opiate epidemic in this country. From the Fed Up Rally at the White House and Washington Monument and the Unite to Face Addiction Rally (celebrating recovery), to the California Prescription Drug Overdose Summit in San Diego, it is important to know that there is beginning to be more talk and even some positive action. In this interview Denise discusses this problem with a Dad who, like Denise, has dealt with this problem in his own family. Brad DeHaven is Denise’s guest this week. He is a dad of an addict, the author of the book “Defining Moments: A Suburban Father’s Journey Into His Son’s Oxy Addiction”, and developer of a resource for loved ones, rxdrugaddict.com. Listen to the discussion, it will sound familiar.
