Mr. Taylor definitely is still able to play the piano. Sadly he needs hard drugs to function normally. Taylor assertions are incoherent and vacuous. His finances are destroyed due to the cost of abuse. His familyshould reach out for help from mental health experts. Some addiction facilities in the United States apparently don’t take elderly people because of the complexities of detoxing them. Recent census data estimates that substance abuse among 70 years and older currently affects about 17 percent of this population. A need for support and the opportunity to learn new coping methods that don’trequire use of cocaine would give to Mr. Taylor the chance to work through underlying and associated psychological issues. A society that is in denial of the sickness in its midst.
