Experts: Pandemic lockdown can be dangerous for people recovering from addiction

Clay Cronic, 26, may be the first Nashvillian in recovery to relapse and die after his 12-step group shut down — and experts warn he won't be the last.

This is Giancarlo and his mother Amanda
He was 19 years old.
He died last Sunday in his apartment from a he**in overdose.
Giancarlo’s mother Amanda Poole Krueger wanted us to share his story.

She doesn’t want to sugarcoat what happened.
She wants people to know the ugly truth of drug addiction.

The ugly truth about he**in.
The ugly truth that it can happen to anyone.

He**in doesn’t care if you’re young or old.
If you’re rich or poor.
If you’re black or white.
He**in doesn’t care.

Amanda says:

Kids are DYING and people are too afraid to be honest even in obituaries because of the social stigma.

How can I go on Craigslist right now and search for black roofing tar and find he**in for sale?
And clear sealant?
That means m**h.

How do I know this and the police don’t?
Why isn’t this a weekly segment on the news?

My son had been clean for 10 months and working for the County of Marin.
He had his own apartment.

We found out he was using on July 24 2017.
We sent him to a rehab that cost $45,000 for 45 days.

Then we sent him to intensive out patient rehab for another 3 months and then a sober living house in Mill Valley for a year.

He relapsed and died alone in his bed.
He was the most gentle soul.

He had a 6 year-old brother Clyde.
He promised to wake up on Christmas Eve so they could look for Santa together.

He was my best friend.
The last thing he’s said to me was:
"I’m ok mom I love you too."
That was at 10:20 on Saturday Night.

He always answered my calls.
But on Sunday morning he didn't.
And I just knew.

The only way I can explain this pain is that every cell in my body that created my son is on fire yearning to hold him again.
It’s a physical pain I feel only a mother would know.
It’s in my bone marrow.
Just a deep yearning to touch him and hold him.

My husband took Giancarlo’s brother Clyde out for a drive to tell him what happened.

He told Clyde:
“I know you see a lot of family coming over and you probably don’t know why.”

Clyde said:
“No I don’t dad”

He said:
“Giancarlo had an invisible disease that made him sad and he took medicine that the doctor did not give him and it made him very sick and he died and went to heaven.”

I wasn’t there but my husband said that my son gave a gut wrenching scream that didn’t sound like it could come from a six year old.

He then brought him home through the back door and he laid in bed with me and covered his face with a blanket and fell asleep.

Giancarlo will be buried on January 7th.

They say it takes a village to raise a child.
I’m learning now that it also takes a village to bury a child.

I don’t know what the solution is but we have to open the conversation in a big way.

Please use my son’s story.
Please help me warn parents that this is out there.
Even in Napa.
Please help me help other families.
Please, please, please.
It’s all I can do now

My name is Bridget and I am an acoholic/addict. By the grace of God, Fayette Co.Recovery Court and the Program of Acoholics Anonymous I have not found it necessary to drink or use in 17 months. Suffering from 18 years of addiction, including alcohol, m**h, he**in, w**d and everything in between. I came into this program on SEPT 21, 2018, straight from jail, lost, broken, and spiritually bankrupted. That's not to say I was a bad person but I had made alot of bad choices in my life. This program did for me what I could not do for myself. This program taught me how to be honest again, how to take responsibility for my actions, it held me accountable and provided a very firm guideline for me to follow because to be honest I didn't know how to live healthy. All they ask of me was to be honest, follow the rules, and don't drink or use. Now considering I had a history of 18 years of bad habits and behaviors Judge Gallagher was quick to pull me back in when these habits and behaviours started to show. Today I am truly grateful for him and his team for that. At the time maybe not so much but today I can see that along with God this program was again doing for me what I could not do for myself. This program truly helped saved my life and is a strong part of the foundation that my recovery is built on. If you are truly ready to change your life and willing to put forth the work required this program can offer you the greatest blessing of a lifetime. A NEW LIFE. If you know someone suffering from the disease of addiction please reach out to them, you may be the only one who does. WE are not bad people, we've just made some bad choices. I am living proof that WE can change! Thank you ever so much God, Judge Gallagher, Daniel Brown, Ms.Kim, Jacoa, Turning Pointe, and the Fayette Co. Recovery Court Team for giving me the blessing of A NEW LIFE.
