Remembering Alexandria Sienkiewicz Who Lost Her Struggle With Heroin Addiction 5 Years Ago



KULICK Re-Records ‘H’


Remembering Alexandria Sienkiewicz Who Lost Her Struggle With Heroin Addiction 5 Years Ago


LISTEN HERE.


In 2016, 23-year-old Alexandria Sienkiewicz wrote a poem about her struggles with heroin shortly before she accidentally overdosed on Fentanyl on 2nd April 2016. Kulick then turned her poem into a song he called “H,” which was originally released on YouTube in 2017.


He also worked with her family on a documentary about her story. To commemorate the 5- year anniversary of her death he has re-recorded the track. LISTEN HERE. Kulick says “We wanted to make a better version of the song and release it on all platforms instead of only YouTube so that it could reach more people going through a similar situation. I wanted to share the message of love and support instead of the stigma that is associated with ‘drug addicts’. I wanted to give Alexandria’s poem about her struggle with addiction a voice. This is a story about heroin first and foremost, but anyone who has ever felt depression, anxiety, addiction, experienced negative self-talk, or internal struggle will be able to feel the power of Alexandria’s words.”


Alex was from the same small town as Kulick, and like many small towns in the USA, (along with countless other parts of the world) it was suffering from a major heroin problem. Alex’s mother reached out and asked Kulick to make the poem into a song. ‘H’ was the result. Today, she says “Five years ago we lost our daughter Alexandria which feels like yesterday but the realization of knowing the last time we spoke to her and said I love you was five years ago is heart-breaking. We were so uneducated looking back, on substance use disorder and embarrassed to ask 5 years ago but we are happy with the changes we helped to make. By bringing substance use disorder out of the darkness and into the light has helped so many people save themselves. Our hope is that Alex's words and Kulick's music inspires more individuals to reach out for help and more parents to get educated in this matter of alcohol and drugs, that is what our daughter wanted.”
