HASH(0x9d386f6c) out of 5 stars Love this book 18 Oct. 2006
By Holly S. Kennedy - Published on
If you are in need of answers and support after losing your child to a drug overdose, you should read this book. Written by the Wittbergers, parents of Jenny, who died of a drug overdose right before her 21st birthday, it details the devastation one feels at the sudden, unexpected and sad death of one's own child to drugs. Beautifully written with compassion and understanding for this unique type of grief. Since losing my own son of 23 years just 6 months ago to a drug overdose, finding ways to survive and face living the rest of my life without my son has been a moment by moment struggle. This book was a huge help to me.

HASH(0x9d8cbf9c) out of 5 stars Surviving the ultimate loss: The death of a child 13 Feb. 2008
By Sheryl Letzgus McGinnis - Published on
The Wittbergers' book is profound and poignant. If you've suffered the loss of a child you will relate to Pat and Russ's heartbreak. Their book will help you through this grief process.

You'll realize that you are not alone in this journey. Read it and reread it and treasure it. I know it will help you.

My husband and I also suffered their heartbreak, losing our 31 year old son to the disease of addiction. No parent should survive their child and it is to the Wittbergers' credit that they opened their hearts to share their story with the world in the hope of helping others.

HASH(0x9d4401e0) out of 5 stars For Parents Who Are Suffering the Final Blow from Their Child's Drug Abuse 18 July 2008
By dlm in florida - Published on

This book is simple and to the point. It is not an analysis of addiction, or of how people get there. It's simply to help parents cope with the fear they have probably spent years worrying about - the death of their child from drug/substance abuse. It is heartfelt advice, and feels like you are talking with another parent who knows exactly what you've been through and are now feeling-because they have. Strongly recommended for parents, friends, and family members. One of few books addressing this topic specifically and well worth buying.

HASH(0x9dcc1690) out of 5 stars Losing a Child to Drugs 24 Jun. 2010
By TX Mom - Published on

I feel that because I am involved with the GRASP group that the authors founded that I had been exposed to and thus aware of the majority of the books content. I loved the poetry that was included though and absolutely feel this is a worthwhile read for anyone who has lost a loved one to an overdose/addiction, particularly those not familiar with the GRASP site. Losing a loved one is always difficult, but losing one to drugs, adds, in addition to the heartbreak, trauma and complication of the loss, the stigma attached to "Addicts" which hopefully will be soon clarified in the public/society's eyes.When a Child Dies from Drugs: Practical Help for Parents in Bereavement

HASH(0x9d0b04a4) out of 5 stars Good book 23 Mar. 2012

Good book for those who have been affected by a loved ones addiction and ultimately their passing related to drug overdose. I did not find all the chapters geared towards healing and did sense some anger by the author in some of the chapters but the resources especially the is an amazing resource. It helps you realize you are not alone and how substance abuse does affect many families.
