'Hits close to home': Area funeral directors face emotional burden from flood of fatal overdoses - TribDem.com

Monday, March 06, 2017

The Decort Funeral Home owner is 33 years old – just a few years shy of the age of the average Cambria County overdose victim last year.Decort said he has watched onetime classmates, old friends and Portage neighbors struggle with addiction.And sometimes they've ended up inside a coffin in his Main Street funeral parlor."When it's people you grew up with ... it hits close to home," Decort said.'The wrong thing'Decort said he tries to erase the stigmas that still follow overdose victims – that they all are impoverished, lonely and down on their luck."Every drug-related funeral I've had, they were people who came from great families," Decort said. "It's not as simple as people think."People from all walks of life struggle with addictions – whether it's alcoholism, hoarding or heroin, he said.It doesn't mean those addicts were bad people."They just got caught up in the wrong thing," Decort said.And too often "the wrong thing" wins out, Hoffman Funeral Home co-owner Chris Hoffman said."A lot of times, it's a young addict just out of rehab," Hoffman said. "They think they are clean – and their family thinks they are clean – and all of a sudden they are back to using again."They think they can just go back to the dose they were using."But this time, their bodies cannot take it, Hoffman said.Sometimes the young embrace the misguided notion that they are invincible, Hoffman said.Drugs such as heroin and Fentanyl beg to differ – and they don't discriminate, said William T. Hindman.Many times, drugs are claiming people well into middle-age – "people you would never think have this kind of problem. But they do," said Hindman, whose family operates funeral homes in Johnstown, Hastings and Hyndman, Bedford County."It's tragic," he said.'Slaves' to addictionHoffman said his family's Davidsville and Boswell locations handled funerals for five overdose victims last year.In the past six weeks, he's had three more.Harris said his Johnstown and Conemaugh funeral homes handled a dozen last year.Late last year, he laid four to rest in one month.Hindman said there are times his funeral homes average one a week.Figures vary from one funeral home location to another, but Hindman said the per...
