RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Our son died of a heroin overdose 8 months ago, to the day. He had been at a 3 week in- patient rehab program in Eugene, and was released just two days before.
What would have made the difference?
1. I strongly feel that enough is not done to ensure patients are "safe" when they are discharged. We need more "transition" homes before patients are released to their old environment.
2. Our son was on Suboxone to help him with his heroin addiction ;in retrospect ; he should have stayed on it.
Cracking down on sellers?
The police did little in our sons case to track down his supplier. Numbers on his cell phone were evidence, but nothing was done....
