CONSIDER THIS: Heroin abuse

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

Heroin overdose deaths are skyrocketing across the country and across Mississippi. You’ve probably seen the very disturbing photos of a 4-year old Ohio boy with his grandmother and her friend passed out in an SUV from an apparent heroin overdose.

The pictures are hard to look at.  But that’s the point.  Police officers have had enough and want people to understand the damage heroin is doing.

Emergency room workers will tell you they are seeing a huge spike in heroin overdose emergencies. 

Consider This:

More and more people are dying from heroin overdose. Until we figure out how to stop the heroin epidemic, we will continue to see an increase in heroin overdose deaths. And don’t think it couldn’t happen to someone you know.

It’s an epidemic that is affecting all levels of income and education, inner city, suburb and rural town and it’s going to take awareness and action in every community to fight this.
