I'm watching Adam Goldstein on this show of his, Gone Too Far, about getting people sober and this sounds ridiculous and possibly stupid but it's an incredibly helpless feeling. I just want to go through the screen and stop time and make him see that he was slipping back into the disease. He is sitting there telling a heroin addict, "I promise you can be freed from this. FREED. There's another life." It's just heartbreaking. Before his death I heard so many stories about what a selfless, generous person he was and since then of course I've heard even more. Here is Dr. Drew talking about him. Possibly only interesting to me! The part at the end is what really kills me.
