    My daugther is a herion addict. I never know if I will ever see her again when she leaves the house or if I will have to plan a furneral. Everyday is unbareable yet it has been like this for over three years. There is no help……just a waiting……that just tells them go do drugs until we get to you. She and many others are caught up in something they can’t fix on their own and can’t because they are controlled by the drug……which lead to so many other crimes. Get them help…….save lives…….and reduce crime.
