Facebook Comment: OD problem started somewhere

Kelowna - Every person that OD’d had someone in their circle who introduced them to it

FB comment:

It’s kind of hard to address the problem (Overdose rate climbing in the Okanagan) when friends and family would rather sit on their hands and not use tough love to get their loved one the help they need. Not sure if it’s a lackadaisical attitude or lack of spine, but every person that OD’d had someone in their circle who knew they were taking drugs, and someone else who introduced them to it.

So, what is it? You don’t care? You don’t want to be the person that steps up? You’re worried about being the ‘bad guy’ for doing the right thing? You don’t think it’s your business to say anything?

Then guess what? Your loved one is playing Russian Roulette, and it’s just a matter of time until you get the call.
