Morgan James’ new book release, Don’t Forget Me: A Lifeline of Hope for Those Touched by Substance Abuse and Addiction by Greenville’s Steve M. Grant, is a survival manual and lifeline for those whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse and addiction. Steve M. Grant shares the tragic story of how drug use impacted his family, with the hopes of encouraging and guiding parents to see warning signs and take action before it is too late.

With the pervasiveness of opiates like Heroin and Fentanyl, nearly everyone has been affected by illicit substance use, directly or indirectly. Steve M. Grant understands how terrifying it is to love someone who is addicted to these substances. In Don’t Forget Me, Grant exposes the details of his own experience as a father of two sons, Chris and Kelly, who took distinctly different paths to the same outcome: death by drug overdose. He reveals his parental victories and shortcomings by taking an honest look at the choices he made throughout his sons’ development.

Don’t Forget Me offers time-tested, practical suggestions for family members who want to help their loved ones but are unsure of where to start. Steve M. Grant wants to help parents of those struggling with substance abuse to avoid the mistakes he made and to find hope, even on the darkest days. Grant hopes that his story can be used as a reference for parents, treatment providers, and recovery professionals, as they work to prevent drug overdose in others.
