I'm soo sorry to hear this, no parent should have to bury their child. Hearing about all these kids dieing from drugs and alcohol lately just makes me want to cry, since i know how it feels used to do the stuff. But luckily i stopped, wasn't getting me anywhere but in worse and worse positions in life and doing terrible things just for a drug. Wasn't worth it at all.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I was on the drug for many years. I am now sober today. I want to one day have a place for people to come to get off this horrible drug. So using people feel like they still have a chance at life. People will always have to deal with addiction once they are an addict but I want to build a place where people can come and learn how to live without this evil drug and learn how to become someone in their community. It saddens me to see some many people esp. young...

I hope that people will start to realize the seriousness of this drug. it does not discriminate against anyone. -A

Do Not stop fighting. Your children NEED you. With out you they may end up the same way. You have to be there to protect them! We never gave up on our son. One of the things I think hit home for my son was when I said to him, what would you do if someone got your kids hooked on drugs? What if these drugs turn you into a vegatable in a wheel chair, slobbering all over yourself. Could you stand the look on their faces when they are afraid to come near you? I knew my son was in there. I NEVER gave up on him!

I lost my daughter to heroin 9 months ago. Her name is Jessica Williams she was 30 years old. She died at the dealer's house and him and his mother dumped her body-it was 16 days before they found her-we have got to save these kids-way to many.

@Robbie Chistie: Here's a suprise for you: People who try heroin are NOT doing it as a career move. You clearly have no idea of "choosing" addiction vs. cancer, et al. It CAN equally be compared to other horrible diseases over which one has no control.

Rubbish AnnMarie,they choose to dabble in heroin.They do not choose to have cancer.Do you have an idea?I feel for you as you obviously have been effected by drugs at one time either by yourself or a family member but can you really compare them?People choose to take these killer drugs most of the time.I say most as a very very small minority are forced into it(pimps)(sex offenders)forcing folk to take it but to compare it to cancer is ludicrous!I have a small idea as i work with addicts...

You must now know as much about it as you claim. LICENSED doctors and Drug and Alcohol Counselors, etc. ALL compare the DISEASE of ADDICTION to cancer, diabetes, AIDS, etc. They are ALL INCURABLE, PROGRESSIVE diseases!! They are also finding that the percentage of it being genetic are even HIGHER than they used to believe.

Cancer is often the result of some sort of behavior an individual has "chose" to engage in (ie: smoking, dietary choices, ect.), just as diabetes and heart disease often develop from "choices" in lifestyle. Yet, they don't carry the stigma that the disease of addiction carries. People don't usually have to worry about judgement when they seek treatment for those diseases.

More awareness is what we need, just because someone is a heroin addict doesn't mean their scum of the earth~sometimes it's quite the opposite~I hate the stigma that goes with this disease, we need help for people not judgement! Good people are addicts! They NEED HELP!

AWARENESS! People are aware. Aware of where the drug dealers live, Aweare of where the drug houses are, Awear of the doctors that are handing out pills. Awear of that person on Welfare that is buying and selling drugs instead of giving their children what they need. NOW DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!! TURN THEM IN. The police have anonymous tip lines and even ones on their web sites. USE IT!! Make the police AWARE of where they are. The DEA has a tip line.
