Love, Wendy


“Addiction not only takes the life of the addict, but of the family. I call it the Humpty Dumpty syndrome. All the kings horses and all the kings men are the heartbroken families who have no idea how to help to mend their loved ones broken spirit…not for lack of trying. We mourn our loved one and forever struggle with the Humpty Dumpty syndrome within part of ourselves as we grieve this senseless loss of precious life…in life and in death. Once the addict climbs up on the wall, it is their tightrope. They can fall at any given moment, without warning, if they aren’t focused and committed to walking slowly and steadily, and have a safety net in place to break their fall. When the addict takes their concentration off of their walk on that tightrope, sidetracked, the result is usually the same…the Humpty Dumpty Syndrome…you can’t put him back together again.” – Wendy Blanchard, M.S., CHHC
