Son, father, and friend to many

My 30 year son, a 10 year journeyman electrician, husband, and father of two beautiful children agreed to enter treatment on May 16. He died on the 14th day of a drug overdose. He was in rehab and had just detoxed. This should have been the highest secured area of the center. What happened? I urge ALL parents and family members to ask critical questions when checking someone in to any rehab...what are your measurable outcomes and have there been any other deaths? What are your security measures and how well staffed is your facility? You must continue to be an advocate for your loved one in treatment. They should never die inside a treatment facility from an overdose.
