A Dad Intentionally Overdoses on Heroin to Teach His Addict Son a Lesson

A Dad Intentionally Overdoses on Heroin to Teach His Addict Son a Lesson 

Here’s more proof that parents will do anything to save their kids’ lives.  Literally, anything. I’m not sure this is even a good idea and we don’t recommend you trying anything like this but here goes…


There’s a 45-year-old father in Brooklyn named Sergey Gnatovskiy.  His 23-year-old son Maykl is a heroin addict who recently got out of rehab and by all appearances was clean.


But last Wednesday, Sergey figured out his son was relapsing when he found his stash.  So Sergey decided there was only one way to scare him straight . . . by doing ALL of the heroin himself and intentionally overdosing.


And when Makyl got home, he saw his dad passed out, almost dead . . . and he realized what he’d done.  He performed CPR and used a nasal spray to revive his dad . . . which is something his dad had done to revive him four times in the past.


Sergey got medical attention, and he says he felt okay the next day . . . but most importantly, the message got through.


Makyl says it scared him straight and now he’s back in rehab.
