We are grateful to have found Shatterproof. It is upsetting to see how many families are affected by this terrible disease of drug addiction.
Our granddaughter was a wonderful person. She cared about people and was devoted to her family. A demon took over the Alexis we know about four years ago. We tried many things to help her. We will always have a hole in our heart over this devastating loss.
We lost our dear grandchild, Alexis Shapiro, to an overdose on August 11, 2018. She was 20 years young. She suffered with this terrible disease for many years and was in residential treatment centers three times. She also went to day care centers several times as follow ups to her residential treatments. She was clean for four weeks and set to go into an halfway house the day after she overdosed.
She started college but could not get past the first year. The insecurities she felt lead her to lean on opioids and drugs. Unfortunately, in the last few years she never felt adequate, happy, or secure unless she was on drugs.
Our family goal is to prevent even one family from going through this devastating event. We are united with SHATTERPROOF to reach this lofty goal.
