next step?

Last week I lost my beautiful, twenty-year-old boy to heroin. It's been a horrible last couple of days for my family and I. Our world was hard before, constantly worrying and living with an addict in our lives, but it's so much worse without him, I never thought that my son's addiction would come to this. I'm especially worried about my other son, who just turned sixteen, and who also found my older son when he overdosed in his room. My sixteen-year-old has barely said anything since, he seems emotionless and doesn't seem present when I try to talk to him, and I just don't know how to help him, which, as a mother, breaks my heart. I wasn't sure if anyone else has had a similar experience and has any idea of the next step I should take in helping my other beautiful boy, because I can't bear to lose him too.
