      This subject touches a cord..My best friend died of an overdose of pain killers but used heroin as a substitute when the pills became too expensive. Most heroin addicts also smoke cigarettes and pop pills. Some states, such as Delaware, have horrible rehab programs. Heroin addicts are just like the setting sun. You watch them slowly disappear.
