The American Heroin Epidemic!


By 
Chris Newcomb, M.Div.

It's no mystery that there is a drug problem in the United States in 2014.  It is a sad state of affairs. However, there seems to be a growing problem with one particular drug: Heroin.  Heroin use is skyrocketing all over the country.  In states like Vermont, the death rate was doubled in just one year.  The problem is people prefer to use heroin because it is cheaper than pills and other drugs but gives a similar effect. Unfortunately, most people have no clue that the cost can mean jail, insanity, and death.  

Last night, ABC News ran a story about this problem in America today called "Hooked: America's Heroin Epidemic".  Take a moment and follow the link below to watch the video.  It is important to know the facts so that you can be aware of those in your midst who may be struggling with heroin as their drug of choice.  We are stronger together and can help more people when we are all aware of the problem.  Please feel free to pass this video on to someone you know who could benefit from watching.
