‘I’ll get better, mom.’ That was 2 days ago. Today, he’s high again. I’ll never give up on my baby.’: Mom says she’ll ‘always have hope’ for son addicted to heroin

“My son has served 10 months in prison, several months in jail, has been in 5 different rehabs. Each time I think, ‘This will be it. He’ll stay sober and start to live life,’ and each time he relapses. I worry every day I’ll get that call telling me he’s dead. At least when he’s in prison, I know he’s alive. My son is not an addict, or a problem. He is just suffering, and I will always love him no matter what.”

‘My heroin addict.’

“I’m not sure who people picture when they think of heroin addicts, so, I’d like to introduce you to mine.”
