by the father of an addict, and originally intended to
raise awareness while his son was in recovery, The
Addict instead is now a posthumous tribute to the son he
so tragically lost to an overdose shortly after the song
was recorded late in 2017. In 2016, 64,000 people, more

can lead to healing, not only for the addict, but for
their families and friends who love them”. – Lyman
Ellerman As part of my goal to support ShatterProof.org,
