In Their Shoes: Walk in the shoes of a mother of a drug addict

It has been said that when a member of the family is suffering from an addiction, the whole family is suffering from that same addiction. D’Anne, a mother with a son who struggles with opioid addiction, joined host Brian Copeland to give outsiders a lens into what that statement really means.

“I didn’t know anything about addiction. I thought you sent them off to rehab, 30, 60, 90 days might fix them. Well, that’s not what happened.”

She shared her and her family’s painful experience in the hopes that it would encourage others to be more empathetic to the hundreds of thousands of people in similar circumstances. 

Take a few minutes to walk in her shoes.
