    This is a moving story, and is increasingly relevant to my efforts to help those in need on addiction advice. My son also slipped into heroin depravity after having abused pain pills for years, we have an ever updating blog at http://www.journeyontheedge.worpress.com that chronicles our story; both it’s successes and failures. Please come check it out, we can all come together as long as we are supportive.
