Celebrities & Opioids
Opioid addiction is killing off our best and brightest…
Including our family members!
Drugs.com reports a list of celebrities who have died from opioids, or had opioids in their system at the time of death (see below).
We can all take a lesson from the famous people on this list. It doesn’t matter how smart, wealthy, funny, creative, or, likeable the addict is, this will not go away on it’s own. ADDICTION is not a will-power issue. I’ll say it again; ADDICTION is NOT a will-power issue! Opioid addiction (or any other for that matter) is a brain issue and, no matter how much a person may want to live a clean life, unless they accept help it simply won’t happen.

Addiction is treat-able and beat-able at Justin’s Lighthouse!
