Share Article

What happens when a pharmacist entrusted with helping the public's welfare becomes his own best customer? First-time author Michael Janflone has taken his story to the public, and none too soon as addiction continues to rise, especially when it comes to high dose opiate pain relievers. A resident of South Florida, home of the oxycodone pill mills, Mr. Janflone has seen countless stories about children as young as 10 years old overdosing and dying from the greed and corruption of unscrupulous doctors. The stigmas keep the disease hidden when an addict needs help the most. His story is raw and unnerving at times, it is a stark portrayal of reality, and one society must come to realize. http://www.longsleevedsummers.com

"I wake up in the bathroom, covered in vomit. I am quite certain someone has broken into our apartment and driven a railroad spike into my skull. What a huge mess."

Long Sleeved Summers is a memoir lucky to even see the light of day, let alone beginning to garner widespread attention. A survivor of multiple overdoses from heroin, Mr. Janflone knows just how fortunate he is to even be alive. It evokes emotions as complex as the facets of addiction are. Any addiction is a roller coaster ride, and the feelings elicited take the reader from laughter to tears. It grabs the reader and refuses to let him/her go until the final page, and its message of inspiration and hope is realized.

This is more than just another memoir, it presents the stark reality and scope of a problem that is not just reserved for celebrity and homeless alley dwellers. It can happen to anyone and affects people from every social class, top to bottom.

Dr. J. Douglas Bricker, Dean of the Duquesne Pharmacy School, praises the work as an “honest, graphic representation of how this disease state can control someone’s life,” while claiming Michael can boast “a story of triumph and recovery and hope for those in despair.”
