California Residents Affected By Heroin Abuse

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

54 children died in San Diego from 2008 to 2009 from heroin overdoses. This exceeds the 17 that died last year from the same drug. Why are so many children dying from this harmful narcotic? One reason is probably because not enough parents are enrolling their children in a drug rehab to handle their heroin addiction.

The only real way to combat this terrifying and deadly addiction is to get someone in a long-term, inpatient facility. One such rehab is Narconon Louisiana. They have been handling heroin addicts for over four years and maintain a 76% success rate for permanent recovery.

If you or anyone you know is in need of help for a drug and/or alcohol addiction please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650 for more information.

Fears may be more heightened now, after an Australian soldier was found to have overdosed from a large amount of strong heroin.
