In memory of Michael John Buvens

Created by Mary Anne Buvens

Michael J. Buvens

Thank you for visiting the memorial I created in memory of my son Michael. I do not want donations, but instead, if you have a loved one suffering from an opiate addiction, please learn the difference between helping and enabling them. If you and your family are enabling, you must stop. Get professional help for yourself(s) to understand the difference. You can love your addict with extreme kindness and compassion, while maintaining the necessary boundaries for yourself(s). This is your first step in helping them help themselves because they are the only one that can change their behavior.

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.
