How To Help

"What can I do to help?" I get asked this all the time. I honestly don’t have a pat answer. This comment from a reader is the closest I can come to what I have learned over the last three years on how you can help addicts, 

“When I was a junkie it was a lot easier to find someone to buy me lunch than it was to find someone who gave a shit about who I was.”

So, what can you do? Don’t judge. Stop and talk. Treat everyone you might cross paths with like what they are, a person. Give a shit about them. Even if that person is a crack addict living in filth...." - Arnade
