My son Nathan passed away on the 14th February 2020 at home. His post mortem results state heroin toxicity.
He was my only child and we were close. He was such a wonderful and caring person to his friends and a wonderful dad to his son. Through the years, he had his ups and downs and wasn’t the most easiest person to be around at times. He started using heroin in his late teens, went on a methadone program and got off the methadone and seemed to be on the right path until that dreaded day I found him at home. I am a nurse with qualifications in drug and alcohol and yet could not save my own child. He was at college studying music as he is very talented and could play 3 instruments. I miss him terribly, his dog Nigel misses him.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
