The Heroin Epidemic: Ending Addiction for Good

Posted: Updated:

This week's episode of Glee is the most dreaded by a dedicated audience. The show is centered on the death of the character Finn.

Art in this case is sadly imitating life because, as most are aware, actor Cory Monteith, who played Finn died in July of a heroin overdose.

Monteith, like his character was the antithesis of what we picture a heroin addict to be. But it's our preconceived image that is skewed, not Monteith.

Southern California suburbs are filled with good kids hiding a potentially lethal addiction. Watch what Richard Taite, founder of Cliffside Malibu Addiction Treatment Center has to say about the epidemic, the reasons and the answers.
