Loss of a Loved One

If you have lost a loved one to opiate addiction, you are not alone.


There are many people out there who have been through the same thing and can help you – the key is identifying resources that are specifically aimed at dealing with death due to drug addiction. A good place to start is G.R.A.S.P. (Grief Recovery After A Substance Passing), which is a national organization that offers help for families or individuals who have had a loved one die as a result of substance abuse or addiction. A list of their chapters can be found here.

Another great resource is Project J.O.S.H. (Journeying Onward Substance-Abuse Help).

Or email Oxy Watchdog. We are connected to a wide network of people just like you, and we can put you in touch with someone who can identify with your feelings and offer emotional support.

One Response to Loss of a Loved One

  1. Thank you for providing me with information about GRASP. We could really use a support group in the Conway, New Hampshire area. NH is under fire with many opiate overdoses this year. I am new to the area but not to the addiction and rehabilitation. In fact, in 2001 my brother Steven died from Oxycontin OD. Since then I founded Transformations Treatment Center in Florida. I sold that company and recently started AddictedMinds.org. As I mentioned to GRASP, if there is anything I can do to help your organization, please feel free to reach out. Thanks so much…
