Not alone

The resources out there are hard to navigate. Especially when you have a 22-year-old daughter addicted to fentanyl .. where do I turn. Hospital visit after hospital visit detox OD suicide attempts only to be sent home.I will take from this podcast what I can to get help maybe for myself initially. I’m lost

Thank you

My son has chosen to be homeless for nearly a year now. I wish I had found this podcast sooner. Thank you for sharing your raw and honest perspectives. I no longer feel alone.
