Heroin and Hospitals

This petition had 93 supporters

America needs a medical urgent care facility for those s suffering from drug addiction. Hospitals are not able to properly treat the thousands and thousands with drug addiction. Heroin is EPEDEMIC!!! Drug addiction is a mental health condition that is not being addressed as such. Jail is not the answer and again those with addiction are tossed into another jail cell. Drug addiction is a jail cell no way out and worse thousands with addiction are now on deaths row YES deaths row no way out!!!!Emergency Departments across the US are overflowing with those suffering from drug addiction especially Heroin. I know first handed as I am in several hospitals daily. I am told hospital staff are not properly trained and I too know this with my sons drug addiction and how horrible the treatment and care is.The proper care/ treatment doesn't exist!!!! So more lives are lost and not saved. Insurance companies determine your child life whether they live or die!!! 30 days in a treatment facility is abuse/neglect!!!! 

What is wrong!!!! The lack of proper medical care to save more lives. With 129 dying a day from Heroin and how many more are dying from other types of narcotic abuse. Wake up America don't kill our youth or adults because we lack facilities for drug addiction! Newyork is so far behind Florida with treatment facilities. WAKE UP AMERICA!!
