Since a few of our members have adult kids using heroin I got interested in it and picked up a book about a normal, if not well off family who found out their daughter first, then their son were heroin addicts. I'm just at the beginning...so far well written...they are just finding out about the son as the daughter who showed them a bent spoon. These kids were well taken care of, had a ready made job in the family company, were paid well, had insurance, cars and rents paid by parents. Not low lives or anything. I thought I'd post the book in case anyone wants to read it. The people in the true story remind me of the people who post here. "How could this happen to US?" And they expected a fast fix for daughter, who they found out about first which, of course, didn't happen. Just very like we hope and feel. Good read so far for me. A learning experience too. I am having trouble posting the link. Go to Amazon or just Google Search. It's called "Mom, I Need Your Help" by Jess Gallant.
