A Missouri mother went on Facebook to share before and after photos of her son in an effort to bring attention to the dangers of drug addiction.
"They say it takes a village to raise a child, I'm learning now it also takes a village to bury a child."
"It is impossible to capture a person in an obituary, and especially someone whose adult life was largely defined by drug addiction."
A young woman is sharing photos of her recovery process from opioid addiction on Reddit to demonstrate what addiction really looks like.
The young woman, who posts as DisregardThisOrDont, wrote of her journey through addiction to recovery, "I realized the only way to get help is to ask."
