I'm a recovering opiate/heroine addict was denied treatment while pregnant by several facilities. I ended up at the methadone clinic as a last effort to get help for my unborn child and myself. 3 years later when I was ready to detox at a treatment facility off methadone I was denied treatment several times again this time I wasn't even pregnant. I was hopeless. It was a struggle id hate for anyone to go thru. Also many many other reason.

I am a recovering addict I done it on my own because I couldn't get accepted to a rehab because they wouldn't accept my insurance.

Im signing this petition because my father was addicted to heroin for almost 3 years in that three years he was arrested multiple times and got clean while being injail when released he relapsed since May 2013 he has been clean. My family understands that addiction is a disease that is very hard to fight, weve lived through the battle of watching him go thru this weve watched him go to rehab, taken family classes on addiction and weve seen that there is hope for recovery. I believe that law enforcement officials and even some healthcare providers are still in denial of this being a disease i am all for promoting this petition to further educate them. I hope there can be more success stories and people can win the battle against heroin for good and law enforcement officers can step up their game and get the dope dealers off the street instead of just driving by them while they're standing on the corner waving people down or barking at them in over the rhine by the shell station on reading road. But they act like they dont see anything police stations have too many crooked cops these days and its down right ridiculous they think just cuz they have a badge they can do anything but theyre too worried about beating the life out of innocent people and shooting people at the first glance than they are to get the dope off the streets heroin is the real issue and I wonder everyday what our world and society has come to. Im a 24 year old mother of two biracial boys and i dont feel safe allowing my children to grow up in such a terrible world when every bit of whats going on can be solved. So this is why im signing this petition. I truly hope this works!

I believe addiction is not only a mental disease that needs treated as such, but also because it's ruining our economy and killing mothers and fathers, they need help not jail!
