1990-2017

Hi I'm Josh. I'm a great son, brother, grandson, friend & father. I was in a car accident & was started on narcotics for pain. I didn't know that was the beginning of the end. I was immediately addicted. My body & mind craved drugs 24/7. I went to rehab a couple times, but insurance only covered 14 days. That wasn't enough. I battled with my addiction every day, while maintaining being a father. I lost my battle on 3/28/17. Two days earlier I had decided I would go to rehab again. I hated this life... but I wanted to live. I lost. Gone too soon from a DISEASE that needed intense treatment. I miss my kids, my family... but not the pain & shame that comes with addiction. I will see you all again some day...
