A Broken Heart Has Love to Give

by Allyson

February 16, 2023

Over several months, 14 bereaved people from the SADOD community set out to write a song describing their feelings about loved ones who had passed away from substance use-related causes. The group’s musical conduit was composer Eleanor Dubinsky – a talented and highly accomplished songwriter.

After many hours of sharing thoughts, ideas, memories, observations, and images, the group collectively composed song lyrics that accurately and inclusively encapsulated a loving message across the breadth of the group’s perspective.

I joined the SADOD team in May of 2022 and have been so inspired and deeply touched by all of those I have met in our community.
