Episode 63: Karen Hardy
I am a 54 year old woman, mother of 2 bio children and 2 step children. Our blended families have addiction all throughout including parents, siblings, and child(ren). I am a mental health and addiction counselor who also worked in the CT prison system for 20 years where I earned my addictions certification and worked in a treatment program. My son is currently 18 months in recovery from heroin addiction. My husband and I are embarking on an overdose awareness hike beginning April 1; we both lost siblings to overdoses. 1 was intentional and 1 was due to interactions of MH meds.
