Chasing the Dragon: U.S. Heroin Rates Skyrocket!!!

Chris Newcomb, M.Div.

Urbandictionary.com defines the term 'chasing the dragon' as, "Smoking heroin off of a piece of tin foil. As the heroin rolls across the tin foil, the smoke moves with it and looks like a dragon. The user follows the smoke with their straw, hence "Chasing the dragon"."  Sounds exciting doesn't it?  Not really.  Sounds awful.  And it is.  I've never experienced it and I never want to however I see the effects of it every day. 

Heroin is no longer an 'inner city' problem.  In fact, CBS News just did an expose on the rising incidence of heroin use and overdose in suburban America.  In fact, the fastest growing group of new heroin users are under age 21!  Take a moment to watch this video.  Please share it with anyone and everyone you know!
