From the Chestertown SPY:

When Carin Miller’s son was about 19 years old, he began to abuse heroin by snorting pills, eventually moving on to shooting up. This went on for six years before he got help.

Lucas Miller’s history of drug use started in high school with smoking marijuana. When he moved out of his parents’ house, one of his housemates had access to between 750 to 1,500 pills at any given time between five houses located in Frederick, Maryland.

“My son was addicted to heroin, he’s in recovery by the grace of God since Thanksgiving 2014, I think that’s where we are at,” Miller said.

Opioid overdoses now rank with cancer, strokes and heart attacks among the top killers in Maryland.

Wishing all the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day that’s filled with love. We also know that today can be a tough day for many and we want to honor those feelings too. Big hugs from the Crossroads family!

Thank you @BlesstheMessyFather’s Day, has never been my favorite. It’s often a day I forget is a holiday or don’t see coming. I have a lot of pain associated with dads. A lot of abandonment and a lot of unworthy feelings.
My biological dad left when I was born. Because it was messy. Because my mother and him didn’t do things “the right” way. He got married to someone else and had three kids the way he wanted.
My mom married a man who adopted me. It’s why my siblings and I all shared a name. I never really thought about how he wasn’t my *real* dad, he was just my dad. Until my parents got divorced. And then he no longer needed to have relationship with me because I wasn’t his *real* daughter.
Both dads have come in and out of my life at their convenience. I tried to reconcile with both dads at times over the years. It was always my work, my problem, something I needed to change to keep their love. So boundaries have been made. It’s still a really hard thing for me. But I am healed in small ways. Watching Greg with our boys, watching my brother in law become a dad, watching Meg miss her dad when she hasn’t seen him for awhile.
I know some of you have the best dads in the world. I know some of you ARE the best dads in the world. So I’ve poured my coffee and im drinking a cup in honor of each of you this morning. Wherever you’re at, I’m sending you love, healing, strength, and strong coffee. xo
