From Grief to Action: When Addiction Hits Home

If your son or daughter has, or might have, an addictive disorder, listen to this show.

What to do if your kid uses drugs

From Grief to Action is a volunteer-based not-for-profit association in British Columbia. They are a voice and a support network for families and friends affected by drug use.
An official society was formed in 1999, just as Philip Owen, Mayor of Vancouver, was bringing in the Four Pillars Approach to address the explosion of drug use and overdoses in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. From Grief to Action brought a new face to addiction: throwing light on a problem which knows no socio-economic boundaries, and can happen in any family.

From Grief to Action aims to promote recognition of drug use as a health issue and to raise public awareness of the needs and concerns of drug users and their families, and work towards overcoming stereotypes and marginalization. They also promote and work towards the establishment of a comprehensive continuum of care for drug users which meets their needs for harm reduction, detoxification, addiction treatment, and addiction recovery, in order that they may achieve and maintain healthy, productive lives.
