A message from Megan's father..
"On December 30, 2014, my daughter Megan died from a heroin overdose at the age of 26, while waiting for an opening at a drug treatment program in Massachusetts. Like most of our children who struggle with substance abuse and addiction, she lived her life full of hopes and dreams, wanting to love, be loved and feel valued.
Megan’s fight with addiction started at age 17 and lasted nine years. Each time she relapsed, she would seek help through different treatment programs. When Megan was in these various treatment programs, she received compassionate and professional care. Megan told me several times that when she was in recovery, she wanted to go to school and learn how to help people, because of the help she received. As time went on, and as the opiate addiction became a national epidemic, it became almost impossible find a bed open in a drug treatment program."
