Letter: Treatment Needed for Heroin Addicts

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

In Berkshire County, as well as other counties across our United States, crime and heroin are causing great problems to the public.

There has to be better places to treat addictions. So many people go to these clinics, yet very few are quitting or getting better.

Crime is going up because they need to steal from others to support their habits. Many people are dying from overdoses, and families are broken.

How many have to die before a real treatment can be found to end this horrible epidemic.
