Grieving the loss of a loved one (Kathleen and Scott’s son Sean) to an overdose of fentanyl (or any drug) is difficult as Kathleen explains. Even after more than 6 years the hole inside is clear and painful! She says that after a time, she became productive and valuable. In her case she learned about grief counselling and found some comfort in helping others who were wounded similarly.
We discussed gateway or entrance level drugs/habits such as cannabis and alcohol. If someone is predisposed to addiction due to inherited genetics or found to have an addictive personality, there is a great danger that he/she will try harsher drugs in the future. Today thousands are ending up on fentanyl/carfentanyl and most will overdose and many will die!
Dealers are adding fentanyl to other drugs to create faster addiction. However mixing powders e.g. heroin and fentanyl, no matter how much shaking of the two drugs that takes place, the drugs are very unequally distributed. Many will get KILLER DOSES and many will get almost nothing!
