That is great that Chillicothe, Ohio believes that the opiate use has stabalized. However, the Heroine use has increased in this small southern town of Ohio due to these addicts no longer able to get the perscribed opiates, cannot afford the opiates at street prices therefpre they go after the cheap Heroine to feed the addiction. Heroine is of course an unregulated drug, no one can be sure what it is cut with or the strength of it therefore we will continue to see heroine use and deaths due to the overdose of heroine increase because there is no plan is place on how to get rid of this terrible drug or to help the people that have become addicts to this drug. It is not only a small town epidemic it is America's epidemic.

I have always said by them making pills harder to get it would only drive people to worse drugs like Herion.

I even told my probation officer that on my way to jail.

And he just said "Thats Just Your Opinion"

I was never a smartass with the law but was never afread to tell them what I think

Suboxon is supose to help people but druggies find a way to abuse those too. So it won't help if they do decide to put clinics in chillicothe.

Suboxone is only a part of the puzzle for addicts. This kind of replacement therapy is useless if the user doesn't do the other necessary things to clean themselves up.

This drug has saved countless lives, and is superior x 10 compared to Methadone maintenance. But again, without changing your behaviors, you're just a relapse waiting to happen.

Most people don't realize that once you get to a certain point, you're not doing drugs to get "high" - you're doing drugs to feel normal and not be sick as a dog. The honeymoon is over after the first few months.

Its everything anymore. Pills, meth, heroin, and those bath salts. Its sad to say thst I dont even feel safe in my own home. Ive seen too many very good hearted ppl lose everything including their lives because there arent enough programs that truely reach out to help.
