I appreciated Kristen Bahler’s coverage of the financial impact of a child’s opioid addiction. Another overlooked cost: raising an addict’s children. My husband and I adopted our three beautiful grandchildren because of our daughter’s heroin addiction. In doing so, unfortunately, we had to postpone saving for retirement in order to cover their daily needs. Though we cut our daughter off financially years ago, we felt our grandchildren didn’t deserve to be collateral damage.
