You already wrote it was an overdose. Why put this on Topix and ask what happened when you already know? Duh! I am sure you don't know them anyway.

All you can do is educate them about it the best you can. The rest is up to them to make the right choices.

Educate your children about drugs. Don't use scare tactics or avoid having the discussions when possible, talk openly and honestly. As for how to avoid it in families, that is impossible. It's all about choices. You teach your children what you can and hope and pray they make the right choices. It's no ones fault when someone does choose to use drugs, not even a dealers, because everyone has free will and I've yet to hear of anyone who was forced into becoming a user. Personal accountability should also be high on the list to teach children.

I worked with Ben for 2 years. He was a great guy, he cared about people. He was always very respectful and trustworthy. I went through a struggle of opiate addiction at one point as well. It's not always about choice I was in a car wreck, an awful one I was prescribed 4 painkillers a day the for almost a year and the doc just cut me off one day. I feel for Ben and his family I beat my addiction but it was the hardest thing I'd ever done. He didn't deserve this I hadn't spoke to him in a year or so, but that didn't change his morals or charcuterie great guy, just a bad situation for everyone RIP BENJI YOU WILL BE MISSED!
