  • Kristy’s Daughter Sarah Lazarus - Another Soul Lost to Drug Addiction

    From Kristy Lindstrom Woodhams, shared in our group New Age Recovery


    I have not shared this photo before today. My daughter, Sarah Lazarus, who passed away June 17th, 2016, was able to write a letter to her family in case she passed away. She knew how deadly the addiction was that gripped her, and she requested in the letter that we share her story in the hopes that her situation could help other addicts who struggle. Addiction is bad enough. But the lack of help, the lack of caring from people in charge of running states, cities, towns, hospitals, the stigma that condemns these people suffering is totally unacceptable. 2 years ago I started sharing Sarah's story, and I was interviewed for a television news cast. When Sarah died the medical examiner issued a plea for more help because the overdose deaths were estimated to double that year. That was two years ago!! The overdoses have increased by 200% since then!! When we only have two dozen beds in Monroe County for detox and when rehab is so scarce that people have to go to other counties or States for help there is something seriously wrong with the situation!!!
    This picture is my daughter, my daughter who survives every day without her sister, her best friend. It is her saying goodbye. It is absolutely the saddest picture I've ever taken. So many families are going through this every single day. So much needs to be done! I am calling out to our City and county officials who are in charge to actually do something rather than say they are aware of the situation. We need action, not words. Or the families of addicts who are suffering need to band together and start voting people into office who really will do something.

    Please share this to open people's hearts and hopefully get action.
