Addicted to Scripts

May 13, 2014

When you hear the phrase drug addict what might come to mind is a disheveled man or woman in a back alley at night sharing dirty hypodermic needles.  The truth is you might be hard-pressed to spot one in a crowd.  More and more, addicts look like everybody else in part because they are addicted to medications prescribed to them.  APR's Roger Adams reports.

The other day I sat down for an interview with two young men. It was a sunny day and we were talking on a bench in downtown Basalt.   They are in their early twenties; both are clean-cut, good-looking guys and very articulate and educated.  They were telling me about heroin.

Medical providers and emergency officials are seeing an increase in the number of heroin overdoses and heroin addicts in the Roaring Fork Valley.  APR's Roger Adams reports.
