1st Grader Finds Heroin On The Way To School

Friday, May 28th, 2010

While waiting for the school bus on Wednesday morning a first grade boy found what he thought to be candy. It was, in fact, heroin – $1,400 worth of heroin. Officials believe that the heroin was placed there by a drug dealer to be picked up by another drug dealer. The spot was merely  a “drop spot”.

Heroin abuse is extremely dangerous and needs to be handled right away. Although these children didn’t ingest any of the heroin, the outcome could have gone down a real dangerous road. 

The only real way to handle a heroin addiction is to enroll in a drug and alcohol rehab. One rehab, Narconon Louisiana has been helping handle heroin addictions for over four years and maintains a 76% success rate for permanent recovery. While most rehabs focus on the 12-step method of recovery, Narconon Louisiana does not subscribe to the idea that addiction is a disease. Instead, clients work one on one with a counselor to figure out what problem drugs and alcohol were a solution for. Once that problem is isolated and handled they no longer have to resort to drugs as a method of dealing with life.

If you or anyone you know is in need of help for a heroin abuse problem please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650 for more information. Help is available.

Heroin Addiction Drove Man To Murder

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Jason Russell Richardson will soon hear his fate after jurors decide if he should receive the death sentence for murdering a Home Depot manager. Richardson was born to a mother who was a heroin addict and lived with his grandmother who was also addicted to drugs. His addiction brought him to the Home Depot where he was planning to rob the store. In the chaos Richardson shot the night manager who was trying to protect his employees. 

Heroin addiction will drive a person to things they never thought they were capable of. One of the main reasons for this is because of the intense withdrawal symptoms a person will experience when coming off of the drug. Withdrawal symptoms from heroin include vomiting, nausea, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, body aches, chills, hot and cold sweats. In fact, these withdrawal symptoms are so severe that often times addicts would rather continue to be addicted than seek help.

The only real way to handle a heroin addiction is to enroll in a drug and alcohol rehab. If you or anyone you know is in need of help please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650 for more information.
