For all of our readers, I wanted to introduce you to a group that focuses on raising awareness to the rising heroin epidemic in this country.

The group is called live4lali.

It was created by Chelsea Laliberte. Chelsea lost her brother Alex to drugs 4 years ago.

Alex died of a heroin overdose. What began as a pot habit in high school, and evolved into a pill and heroin addiction. You can read his story here.

Please check out their page. Please also like their facebook page, and if you are a former addict, or you have a loved one who you’ve lost to drugs, or who continues to struggle with addiction, please share your story.

It’s important that this community of anti-drug activists stay strong and support each other. We can make a difference.
