A note from Rena...It has been a tough week for those of us who serve people in recovery in the north metro Atlanta area, as we lost yet another one of our young men to overdose. This one hurts deeply because he was an exceptional person from a beautiful and loving family. In recording the closing for this episode, I wept big tears for my young friend and his family. I almost re-recorded the message, but then again decided to keep it exactly as it is...Raw, emotional, difficult to hear. It's time we all let down our guards and started standing up and fighting for those who struggle...and their families.
