Overdose Loss, Grief, and Resilience
The following research encompasses the analysis of peer-reviewed journal articles on complex grief and obtaining resilience after losing a loved one. It analyzes the effects of loss on mourners, the processing of grief, and evidence-based research on finding resilience.
Overdose loss has underlying intricacies of stigma, shame, and blame which add to the normal stages of grief and complicate the process of healing.
Overdose does not discriminate; it can happen in any family. With the number of overdoses skyrocketing, it is important to look at the families who are affected.
There is an abundance of research on grief from many angles, but there is a much-needed gap to be filled when it comes to Overdose Grief.
