Heroin addiction is a National epidemic

Heroin addiction has become a national epidemic. Heroin is second to only alcohol in Illinois where people seek treatment for addiction. Police report that there is confusion with young people and what addiction really is. Kids feel that if you’re tying off and shooting then you’re an addict, but if you’re snorting and you’re smoking you’re just partying.

Between 2007 and 2011, heroin overdose deaths increased by 50% in one county in Illinois and the number of heroin deaths in Will County in 2012 doubled from the previous year. These kinds of numbers are being reported all over the county as well.
