NW Ohio and SE Michigan are battling a heroin epidemic. In fact, in 2014 Ohio had the second highest drug overdose death rate.
Having seen firsthand the devastation of grieving families dealing with the death of a loved one from a heroin overdose, Keith Walker, President of Walker Funeral Homes, has launched a health alliance comprised of mental health and government agencies, local support groups, the media and local businesses for the “Heroin Steals the Future – There is Help” campaign in January 2016.
This partnership has launched a comprehensive website that provides support and resources for the addict, the caregiver, and for local businesses. This site provides advice, support and information about treatment, where to seek assistance and emergency measures. If you or someone you know is struggling with heroin addiction or you just want to be informed about the issue and what you can do, please visit this excellent website.
