One family's secret: an addicted teen

Mommy blogger, Katie Allison Granju, recently revealed that she's the mom of an addicted teen. After a drug overdose and brutal assault landed her son in the ICU, she revealed her family's secret and the nightmare they're all going through.

She writes:

"My beloved, firstborn child suffers from a terrible disease, addiction, and he has been struggling with it for several years. It started with early juvenile experimentation with marijuana at about age 14 and has progressed to where he is now, addicted to hard street drugs and as a result, lying in a critical care hospital bed, dealing with a horrific brain trauma along with various other physical injuries that are the direct result of that disease."

Based on the amazing number of comments she has received, addiction is an issue that many families are battling with, but is never talked about.
