EP67 Are You More Influenced by Stigma Than Science?

Today marks one year since Helanna passed away from a fentanyl overdose. This podcast would not exist without Helanna so her interview is being released again to honor her memory. It is one of the most listened-to episodes on the podcast.  Heather also shares some of the realizations she's had since Helanna passed, in an updated intro to the episode. 

 Link to find Naloxone If you can't find Naloxone using the link, search for a recovery alliance or harm reduction organization in your county.  

Original Episode Show Notes: This week I got to interview my daughter.  You've been hearing my experience of her addiction so I think that it's important to hear what her experience was like. 

Some of the questions I asked: 

  •  I learned a few new things and had some realizations while listening to her insight and I ended up sharing some things I've never shared before. 
  • What was it like when I expected her to be ok to make me feel better instead of me being stable for her? 
  • What else did I do that wasn’t helpful to her? 
  • What did I do that was helpful to her? 
  • Is there anything I could have done differently to help her not struggle with addiction? 
  • What did she get out of using substances? 
  • What made her want to get sober? 
  • What has relapsing taught her? 
  • What makes her feel supported in sobriety?
