When a dad’s heart is broken by his son’s addiction – how an overdose death becomes a lifetime commitment

Addiction in a family is painful enough. Losing a child to their disease causes the deepest of hurts. Today’s podcast features a dad who is passionately and intently living the commitment he made to his son at his memorial service. This talk is blunt, authentic, and inspiring.  Join us as we explore Bill’s journey through treatment programs, the social challenges every parent faces, and his personal commitment to educate and inspire. Thanks to Bill Williams for being on the Addiction Conversation today.

On November 29th, 2014 Elizabeth and her friends will run a half marathon to raise money to help individuals and their loved ones who are impacted by addiction. The money raised will be donated to the Where There’s A Will Fund, which was founded in memory of Elizabeth’s brother, William Head Williams, who died of a heroin overdose two years ago.
