May 19, 2017 – Two Years

On this day, two years ago, we received a phone call from the police, one that no parent ever wants to get.

On this day, two years ago, we received a phone call from the police, one that no parent ever wants to get. We were informed that our son, Tyler, was found unresponsive and barely breathing from an apparent drug overdose. He was being transported to the ER. Not long after, the attending physician called and suggested that we come to the hospital as quickly as possible.

The events that transpired from that moment forth, were life-changing. Not only for Tyler, but for his family as well.

We started a Facebook Page on Tyler’s behalf and updated friends and family on his progress. The outpouring of support was like nothing we had ever experienced. And while Tyler is still dealing with the repercussions of his actions, each day he continues to improve in some way. He truly is a miracle.

But where there is light, there can also be darkness. This day set in motion a series of events that forever changed our lives. It isn’t just what happens in the life of an addict, but what happens to those that love an addict.

This blog is an attempt to share with you the aftermath of an addiction. This is the parents story.

  1. You’re very brave to put it all out there. It’s no ones business, but truely it is. I’m only one of many, who wonder how you ended up on this current path, and can only hope that the story will end with a “happily ever after”…We can only hope and pray….

    1. Thank you for your comment. I’ve fielded many questions from people that don’t really know everything that transpired, beginning with an overdose. I am hoping to clear those questions here.
