Can you prevent overdose? Kelly wants you to know.

We express our condolences to every parent who has gone through the pain of addiction, overdose, and death of a child. These tragedies will be far less frequent when every adult takes responsibility for protecting everyone’s child from early drug and alcohol exposure. We don’t let children run into the street. Don’t let one be exposed to intoxicants. Until there is a test for immunity from addiction, the only option is to protect all children from exposure.

Know that brains are still developing until age 25; know that growing brains learn chemical dependency better than fully mature brains.

Watch Kelly’s heartbreaking story, and then light a candle for the other 3,000 people (somebody’s child) who will lose their life to addiction this month.
