The three-part series began running locally March 23 in the "Miami Valley Sunday" published by Civitas Media. The special series, which includes several articles each day, puts a face on the growing problems of heroin addiction. Utilizing the resources of around 100 Civitas newspapers in 12 states, the series brings you into the battles being fought by addicts, their family members, law enforcement and health officials.
Day 1: Faces of Heroin: A demon knocks on the doors of America.
Day 2: Shattered Lives: Those whose lives have been stung by addiction; those who deal the drug.
Day 3: Success Stories: Treating, beating the epidemic.
The stories can be found at the papers' websites. Links for the feature in Civitas papers in the Tri-County area are:
