In an exclusive interview with, Nana Kottens said “I’m a social worker and I get out and educate people on opioids and other drugs,”.

“As much as we help people, we often don’t pay much attention to family support. This song is an attempt to raise awareness for that support system – to raise awareness of addiction and its effects on individuals and families. It’s also a way to shed a little bit of light on the stigmatization of addiction. A lot of people are striving for a better life away from addiction, but they aren’t likely to share that struggle because of society’s stigmatization of addiction”, Nana Kottens emphasized.
