I manage this website by myself because I am the father of an opioid-addicted son, now deceased. I will update and further develop this site to educate and empower parents that have children with opioid use disorder.

If any specific content, downloads, or hyperlinks have helped you or your adult child, please write me and let me know. 
That said, since I am still working as a social worker, I may not be able to respond to every email.

My hope and intent is that someone reading this website or my upcoming book will quickly learn about what to expect with opioid addiction, and to eliminate the slow learning curve. I believe acquring knowledge early on will facilitate thoughtful exploration of options, resources, and pivotal decisions. To that end, please add the hyperlink to other web pages if you feel this material can benefit other parents in need of information.

The content and tools of my website can hopefully make a positive difference to you and your child regarding actions taken in overcoming their opioid use disorder with the goal of preventing an overdose death. From one parent to another, I can now say I do truely understand. I hope your adult child regains their health, zest for life and has a sober future in the road ahead.
