A family disease

Remembering one who fell victim to an addiction a year ago.  My nephew, Zachery Miller.

May his family know peace.

No one's son wants to grow up to be addicted.  Treatment programs work as hard as those with this disease do, and yet it often takes more than families or medical professionals have, and the disease takes young lives.

That's why I stopped working in addiction treatment.  It was too sad.  Too many young lives lost.

In the early 1970s I worked with an addiction treatment program for heroin addicts. It was totally depressing and seemingly useless. Very depressing.
