One of the most difficult things I have ever had to do is try to make people aware that addiction is a disease.
My mission is to see change.
I DO NOT do this for sympathy; I do this for my son. I do this because I care.
I will not stop until there is CHANGE.
My hope is someday people will stop looking at the addict as a “Junkie” but as people with a serious brain disease. I do not wish on anyone what my family has had to endure with the loss of Ryan. I can honestly say it has been the worst experience of my life.
