AToN Center grieves the loss of yet another life as a result of an ongoing battle with addiction. Actor Cory Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol, it was revealed on Monday. The Glee actor, who was found dead in his hotel room on Saturday at the age of 31, died from a ‘mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol, according to authorities.
We are reminded all too often that the battle with addiction can lead to death when left untreated, or when a relapse occurs. It is imperative that both treatment providers, as well as friends and family involved with those who are fighting this battle, communicate the seriousness of what our loved ones are facing. AToN Center staff continue to remind our alumni about the importance of participating in consistent aftercare support, along with community support meetings, outpatient treatment, and when indicated sober living.
Please take comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your journey, and that whether you’ve completed treatment and are sober, or are still in your addiction, it is never too late…until it’s too late. We encourage you to reach out to trusted loved ones, as well as treatment professionals, in order to ensure you receive the attention you deserve!
