After Barry Adkins lost his 18-year-old son Kevin to alcohol poisoning, Barry knew he didn't want to be a victim.  Instead, he hiked 1,400 miles from Arizona to Montana with Kevin's ashes in his backpack, in order to raise awareness and reach as many people as he could with a warning about the dangers of binge drinking.  He has since authored the book "Kevin's Last Walk: A Father's Final Journey With His Son" and has reached thousands of people across the country with his message.     Contact information, resources and links mentioned in this episode:Kevin's Story video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0blTIbbzO8Kevin's Last Walk Website: https://kevinslastwalk.com/Kevin's Last Walk Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kevinslastwalkKevin's Last Walk Twitter: https://twitter.com/kevinslastwalkNational Suicide Prevention Lifeline: (800) 273-8255Crisis Text Line: Text "Listen" to 741741Teen Lifeline: (800) 248-8336SAMHSA Behavioral Health Treatment Locator: https://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/notMYkid Website: https://notmykid.org/notMYkid Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/notMYkid/notMYkid Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/notmykiddotorg/notMYkid Twitter: https://twitter.com/notmykidtweetsnotMYkid YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/notMYkidVidsWin This Year show email: WinThisYear@notmykid.orgSponsor website: https://www.firstcheckfamily.com/(Use code WINTHISYEAR to save on your order.)
