HC DrugFree Remembers
The HC DrugFree family is remembering Tyler Johnson, who was killed on January 25, 2014. His story of teen drug and alcohol abuse and addiction pierced many hearts, while his story of recovery offered hope and excitement at the possibilities ahead.
Tyler, an HC DrugFree speaker, was quick to offer his assistance to our staff and anyone in need, had an infectious smile and greeted everyone with a warm embrace.  I'm comforted knowing we shared a "Tyler hug" the last time I saw him, but never did I think that would be our last.
He was destined to make a difference in this world, and he did. He shared his story with hundreds of teens and parents and freely gave of himself so others could avoid the path he traveled as a teen.

We at HC DrugFree miss Tyler, continue to share his story, and work to prevent drug and alcohol abuse. On behalf of Tyler, I ask you to intervene quickly and often when you suspect a teenager is illegally using drugs or alcohol, give a "Tyler hug" to your child or grandchild to let them know that you are their safe place, and most of all, remember, there is hope and help for drug and alcohol addiction.
