The Drug Crisis: Faces Behind the Struggle

Aug 3, 2018

Karen Bailey lost her 24 year old son, Corey, in 2011 to an opioid overdose. To add to Karen's terrible burden of loss she also lost her daughter, Alyssa, Corey's younger sister, a victim of suicide nearly four years later.  Alyssa had also battled addiction and shared drugs with her brother on the day he died. While Alyssa survived at that time, her brother's death only made her addiction worse, leading to her tragic death. Karen, their mother, says it all started with marijuana.
