Parents and spouses turn to peer-led groups for emotional support they have trouble finding elsewhere.
Welz, whose daughter Zoe died of a fentanyl overdose in 2016, values the support from other families. "Through our own grief," she said, "we've really become a community." While GRASP has filled a void, Welz believes there needs to be a Canadian-based support network. She is working with Moms Stop the Harm to start launch Healing Hearts, a new grief recovery network that will be a structured and insured group with an activity schedule and trained leaders.
