I posted my thoughts about the Heroin Epidemic into this blog site last week. I had written the article for myself. When I sent it to my son he encouraged me to post it.
We Came out of the Silence together.
Our intent was to share with friends, family and a hometown mourning the loss of a young man we knew when he was a boy. The town was jolted by three overdoses last week alone, two resulting in death. The third was able to be saved with the use of Narcan.
Astoundingly, this blog has had over 17,000 hits as of this writing. The response has been overwhelming. All of your messages, phone calls, comments and texts have been so supportive and extremely enlightening. The blog has been read all over the world.

Addicts and families of addicts should not suffer in silence.
