Human Library - Drug User Book
After a traumatic childhood, Sean LeBlanc moved to the east-coast to go to university. When his pregnant partner drowned, Sean turned to drugs for solace. He spent seven years dependant on drugs, three of which while living on the streets of Ottawa. Now he's weaning himself off heroin through a methadone program. Sean is the co-chair of D.U.A.L., a non-profit group that advocates for harm reduction and the education of drug users.
Here, Sean describes the stigma that surrounds problematic drug use, and how the actions of a 13-year-old girl almost make him cry.
