County To Offer Anti Heroin Treatment for Those Headed Back on the Streets

      It doesn't cure the problem, but the Sheriff's Department is acknowledging heroin addiction as the health problem it is by offering treatment upon leaving jail that reduces the appetite for the drug for at least a month or so.
     It's all a very complicated problem as society ping pongs back and forth between compassion and the desire for law and order.
      But the program seems a symbolic move in the right direction.

No longer are we responsible for our actions.......I thought our NFP's would handle this....But the taxpayer gets to, quit arresting them...
