Speaking About The Opioid Crisis - Part 1

posted on

The featured conversation is with two parents who have lived the nightmare of Opioid abuse in their homes to discuss the loss of their children to addiction. The story is powerful and honest and hopefully will help others coping with similar issues. Featured parents are: Dennis Gravelle from Leominster who lost son Jacob Joseph Gravelle after a 15 year battle at age 33 and Michelle Dunn who lost daughter Alyssa Elizabeth Dunn at age 20 after a 5 year struggle with Opioid addiction. The hosts: Mary Lotze and Andrew Couture believe that this non partisan topic is so timely, meaningful and respectful to all that the group will reassemble in several weeks to continue the conversation in April in Part II of this two part show.
