The Pain of Addiction

Last week on Maritime Magazine, the CBC's Margot Brunelle introduced us to Amy Graves, a young woman whose life changed forever when her brother died after mixing alcohol with the drug dilaudid.

Amy became an activist, making noise - and enemies - in her efforts to bring awareness to the issue of prescription drug abuse.

This week, in part two of her series, Margot introduces us to two people who know first-hand the perils of that kind of addiction....and who challenge our stereotypes about what an addict looks like.
