In memory of Zachary Wells

Created by Family Of Zachary Wells

Zachary Wells

My son, Zachary Daniel Wells, died at the age of 16 from a heroin overdose.

He began "casually" drinking at the age of 8 when I divorced his father. His father and grandparents allowed it. It escalated to pot. I tried to get help but was told, "It's just pot. There's nothing we can do."  Then onto bigger things. I don't believe he was addicted but he was on the path. Why isn't there help BEFORE a child becomes an addict? Zack was a confused boy with a heart of gold. When he died, so many people told me stories of his loyalty.

If drugs were something I could kill, I'd gladly spend the rest of my life in prison to stop this madness.


This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
