The Forgiveness Road:
Facing into Pain
In British Columbia, Canada, 1422 people died from drug overdose, in 2017.
“According to the B.C. Coroners Service, of those victims, 82 per cent were men, 88 per cent were alone in a residence at the time of death, and over half were 30 to 49 years of age and Fentanyl was detected in 81 per cent of the total fatalities.” (1)
Mostly men are dying alone in B.C.
What does that say about our society?
Stigma, connected to drug addiction, is forcing men to do drugs alone, not reach out for help?
Sorrow, anger, fear. . . not understanding the correlation between healing and feeling. . . facing into the pain. . . not numbing with drugs. . .?
