Grandparents giving up retirement to raise kids in response to opiate crisis

Grandparents giving up retirement to raise kids in response to opiate crisis "An increasing number of grandparents in Michigan and nationwide are sacrificing retirement to raise grandchildren abandoned as a result of the opioid crisis — often with little support to help them navigate schools and social services, according to a new report."
As a Grandparent, I feel for these people. It is NOT caused because they raised their kids wrong or didn't have 3 meals a week with them--it is a complicated issue and addiction has a strong physical component--as a society is our responsibility to help these self-sacrificing people..where do you stand?
