Angels of Addiction project turns overdose victims into art, provides resources

They are the faces of the opioid crisis in New Hampshire.

Men, women, young and old with one thing in common, each had someone who loved them.

Now mourners have a chance to see the faces of the deceased in a new light.

Plaistow resident Anne Marie Farley Zanfagna lost her youngest daughter to an overdose in October, 2014. She took her grief and created art.

Farley Zanfagna takes photos of those lost to addiction and creates colorful paintings in their likeness.

For Doug Griffin, whose daughter also died from an overdose, the painting of her is truly cherished.

The pictures are part of Angels of Addiction, a project which also provides resource information for those dealing with addiction on its website.
