Heroin addiction takes quite a toll on the lives of people and their families, and this was demonstrated by a set of graphic photos released by the city of Ohio.
In the photos, a child is sitting in the back of a car, while two adults are passed out in the front.
The decision to depict the harsh reality of the other side of heroin was explained as necessary on the Facebook page of the city of East Liverpool. They feel like they need to be the voice for the kids caught up in this awful mess.
The Traffic Stop
The city government posted the photographs on its Facebook page along with a graphic warning. They were taken by the police during a traffic stop Wednesday.
