Two years ago, Sandra lost her husband to a drug overdose. In this episode, she walks us through watching Danny, the love of her life, slip farther and farther away while attempting to get help and not being able to maintain his sobriety. Sandra speaks candidly about how Danny’s addiction affected her and their children, which led her to have to make some heartbreaking decisions.
Sandra has since started a non-profit organization called Families of Addicts Supporting Families of Addicts. She believes that treating the addict is only part of the solution. Addiction affects the entire family, and therefore, the family needs support as well.
