The school day started with a crush of cops on the campuses of three Temecula Valley high schools.

In the end, 20 juvenile students were in handcuffs, and two adult students were headed to jail cells.

A long time undercover operation from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department focused on a variety of drugs.

According to the Murrieta Patch, the investigation resulted in the seizure of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin LSD, and prescription drugs.

There were a number of agencies that assisted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department with the arrests.

They included the Southwest Corridor Narcotics Task Force, West County Narcotics Task Force, the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and Temecula Police Department Special Enforcement Team.

While some communities are seeing a reduction in the number of heroin related deaths, others are seeing an increase.

The state of Maryland has a disturbing trend.

According to the Examiner, the number of heroin deaths rose 41% from year to year.

You can read more about the situation in the state by clicking HERE.

While the totals still seem extremely high, St Louis County in Missouri has seen a reduction in deaths.

This is the second straight year that the death total from heroin has declined,

There is a great article in the Marion Star today by Nick Bechtel.

It is a very deep look at how heroin use can not only grip a drug user, but how it can put the whole family on edge.

We highly recommend that you take some time reading how opiate addiction and heroin use is infiltrating our suburbs, and how families are coping with it.

The lucky ones are the ones who may be enduring a several year period of addiction, incarceration, and residential treatment programs.

The unlucky ones have buried their kids.

The article can be found HERE.

We frequently explain that pill abusers turn to heroin because either their pill supply runs dry, or that they can no longer afford to buy their opiates in pill form.

Make sure your teen is clean with Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

No community may be seeing a bigger explosion in heroin use than the Maryland beach community of Ocean City.

Citing a 550% increase in heroin cases from the past, investigators there recently conducted an investigation spanning several weeks.

Officers arrested numerous drug users who were buying and selling heroin.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the community there is seeing an explosion in heroin use as measure are being put into place to prohibit prescription fraud.

Operation Smackdown saw undercover officers purchase numerous drugs, but heroin was the chief substance bought and sold.

Nobody just starts trying heroin one day. This is an addiction level built up by opiate use that manifests into heroin use.

It’s important communities continue to explain to people of all ages how critical prescription drug abuse is.

Addicts range in age from early teens to the baby boomers.

The best thing parents can do is either lock up or dispose of old medications to make sure that their children can’t experiment with any pills in the home.

The other thing parents can do is home drug test their children regularly.

Random home drug testing can help detect use that the nose cannot detect. Too many parents keep their nose trained for alcohol or marijuana, but you can’t sniff out a pill.

More information on the busted heroin operation that was serving New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, and Philadelphia.

New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said authorities arrested 15 people and seized three kilograms of bulk heroin worth more than $300,000 wholesale.

Authorities also netted nearly 500 bricks of the drug that were ready for resale and could fetch upward of $1 million.

The network operated out of a series of heroin mills and stash houses in Paterson, Chiesa said.

Police called this a sophisticated operation.

His story is very similar to others who have died from drug abuse.

But unlike the others who are buried in cemeteries all over America, Jeff  Thompson is alive to tell his story.

And he wants kids to listen.

Don’t gamble on your teen being the one who survives drug abuse. Take action!

He spoke to the Las Vegas Sun about his ignorance regarding the strength of drugs, the place where drugs eventually took his close drug-using friends, and the best advice he can live from now that he’s sober.

He started using marijuana at 12, evolved to pills at 14, and moved on to heroin by 16.

He told the Sun’s Jackie Valley, “Unfortunately, most of my friends passed away or are in jail,” he said. “There’s not really an in-between.”

Kids that get high should read Jeff Thompson’s story. He said he had no idea how addictive pills were.

And explains, something we’ve illustrated many times, that a balloon of heroin becomes much cheaper than the pills.

It’s not just the rock star lifestyle – it can happen to any family.

Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter is like many young men and women who abuse heroin in this country.

They come from good families.

The student was taken into custody after an incident at her dorm room at Hamilton college in New York.

Emergency crews were already treating Stephanie Bongiovi for an overdose when authorities arrived.

Bongiovi is lucky to be alive tonight. Many other kids end up dying after heroin use.

There was a death recently in Missouri, where an 18-year-old died the first time she tried heroin.

Teens and young adults typically do not try heroin after experimenting with alcohol and marijuana.

Heroin is typically a necessity for an abuser of prescription drugs. The opiate addiction is so severe, that they turn to heroin, a cheaper more pure high.

There’s no word on the condition of Bongiovi tonight, and we wish her a quick recovery.

These kinds of scary situations can be eye openers for parents.
They need to talk to their kids about the dangers of drugs, and experimenting with heroin can be a deadly mistake.

It is not uncommon for parents to test teens who go away to college. Many of the parents are paying the bills, and they want to make sure their kids are not partying with illicit drugs while away from the home.
