Funeral Home and Heroin Overdose Training
No family member wants to hear that a loved one has died, but hearing that they have died from an overdose on heroin is one of the most devastating things to be told. And sadly, more and more families are hearing these exact words and are being forced to deal with a lifetime of questions and a sadness that is unlike any other loss. This also means those in the funeral home industry are facing more and more heroin deaths than ever before and are encountering more and more families grieving the loss of friends, loved ones, children, siblings, parents, and companions who have been claimed by this epidemic. It is our responsibility to be there for families during this time and to help make the grieving process as manageable as possible and to help family members say their final farewells to loved ones. In order to do this, it is important to understand the heroin epidemic, what it does, how it is spreading, and what can be done to end the cycle. That is what this training course is aimed at providing-a basis and general education for funeral home directors and their staff to assist them with handling this delicate type of funeral planning.
