The only thing worse than a death related to an overdose, is when the death could have been prevented.

A new law, proposed by the Senator, is in the works that would give immunity to 9-1-1 callers who are present when someone they are with overdoses.

Citing the death of comedian Greg Giraldo, the New Jersey newssite NJ.com, breaks down the proposed law.

Teensavers believes this is a much needed law across the entire country.

It’s not just the rich and famous who die like Giraldo. Teens, fearing arrest, often bail when one of their friends overdoses.

Not only should more Good Samaritan Emergency Response Acts be proposed, but they need to be publicized to let teens know that they won’t be in trouble for trying to save a friend’s life.

The Teensavers team had heard about “Overtaken,” a movie produced by two Orange County moms, but we hadn’t had a chance to see it until now.

The driving force behind the film are Jodi Barber and Christine Brant.

Jodi lost her son Jarrod to a powerful drug cocktail. He died on the couch while watching a movie. His friends thought he was sleeping.

Overtaken is a movie that can open the eyes of children and parents, as these first-hand accounts of these survivors will show you that drugs can affect any family.

You can watch the movie on the production company’s website by clicking HERE.

If you want to know who is making the effort to save lives not only in Orange County, but across the country, look no further than these two women.

It doesn’t matter where you live, there are addicts all around you.    Millions of people are struggling with drugs.   They are good people who started off making a bad decision.

It’s not just adults abusing drugs.  While 40 people die each day from painkillers, more teens are experimenting with pills.

Addicts are generally the same.

But their stories are very different.

They may have arrived at the same place, but they took many roads to get there.

I scream. You scream. We all scream for drugs?

Parents in Somerset, PA knew something wasn’t right about the ice cream truck in their neighborhood.

And Police say those people were right.

Officers took a closer look at a converted ice cream truck and found that the vehicle was loaded with heroin and drug paraphernalia.

When Somerset police pulled the truck over they found drugs, needles, syringes and a tourniquet.

This is a great example of how people in the community spoke up about something that seemed suspicious and police removing drugs off the streets.

Our growing pill problem is getting so out of hand, that a mother had to turn her own son into police.

This wasn’t a middle aged woman turning in her adult son for the crime.

Police say the alleged pill thief is only 13-years-old.

They say that the young boy took her anti-anxiety pills.

According to West Virginia’s Metro News, the boy was not home when authorities answered the woman’s call.

But a short time later a neighbor reported a break in and a burglary of pills.

Shortly after that burglary, the boy stumbled into the bushes.

The authorities say the boy was unable to run in a straight line because of the effects of the pills.

The boy is now facing charges in juvenile court.

West Virginia, like many other states, has been plagued by prescription drug abuse.

And as tough as it is for a mother to turn her son over to authorities, this may help the boy overcome his desire to use pills.

Parents cannot sit back and think that the pill problem in this country won’t take hold of their child.

More kids are trying prescription drugs because they are deemed “legal drugs.”
