Hi everyone. My name is Alecia and I am the mother of 2 sons. My older son Josh is a heroin addict and will be spending his 24th birthday behind bars. He became addicted to opiates, mainly oxycontin, and was arrested for burglarizing a home when he was only 20 years old. He then graduated to heroin and it still pains me to think of my first born son being a heroin addict. He is one of the most intelligent people I know and has so much potential. I have learned about the disease of addiction by living with my addict son who has lied, stolen and broken my heart umpteen times. I love my son but hate the disease. I know the disease knows no boundaries. I know the shame, guilt, remorse, heartache, stress and isolation that come from being a victim of the disease. It is truly a family disease. I do not have all the answers, but I am more than willing to reach out and help any way that I can. Hope and prayers to all of you, Alecia
