Heroin Addiction Education &
Prevention for All
Heroin-related deaths have nearly tripled in the United States, and that’s just in the last five years alone. Heroin and opiate addiction has long been a hush-hush topic that families and communities have brushed under the rug. But we cannot afford to be silent any longer.
MISINFORMATION on what heroin addiction looks like is everywhere. In 2015, the National Center for Health Statistics reported that the “face” of heroin addiction has totally changed. In the year 2000, the highest rate of heroin-related deaths was seen in African-Americans ranging in age from 45 to 64. But by 2013, 18- to 44-year-old Caucasians became the largest demographic do die from heroin! And that’s a fact!
With heroin and opiate addiction on the rise every year, it’s critical that cities and towns, suburbs and neighborhoods all across America become better educated about this devastating epidemic. That’s why A Man in Recovery – and its programs and services – work tirelessly everyday to reach as many communities as possible.
