Whats in YOUR syringe? – Lorelie Rozzano

The fact that heroin addicts inject opiates into their veins, is not new news. But did you know their families inject substances equally as deadly? They may not get the same high, but it’s toxic, none the less. The well-being of the addict’s family, becomes dependent on the addict’s behaviour. Simply put, the way their day will unfold, rests squarely on the shoulders of the addict.

While the addict injects their next fix, the family loads their syringe with:

  • Misery
  • Despair
  • Hopelessness
  • Bankruptcy
  • Broken relationships
  • Blame
  • Delusion
  • Denial
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Dishonest thinking
  • Insanity
  • Poor health
  • Mental obsession
  • Insomnia
  • Enmeshment
  • Secrets
  • and the list goes on


The whole family needs detox.
