This Sunday 4/13/14 on HOT 97 Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers, we're talking about "THE NEW HEROIN EPIDEMIC: Why is a new generation turning to an old school drug?"
IT'S GOT BRAND NAMES LIKE NFL, GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AND ACE OF SPADES....BUT IT'S A DANGEROUS DRUG.
Experts tell us heroin has never been cheaper ( about $4 a bag in some places) or more potent. It's also gotten more deadly. Heroin overdoses among teens and adults in their twenties have skyrocketed in the tri-state area, and so have overdose deaths. It's not just strung-out Hollywood celebrities.
The problem is so severe in New Jersey, they're opening their first high school just for recovering addicts - all under the age of 20!
What's going on? We're looking for the following guests:
1) CURRENT OR FORMER HEROIN USERS/ABUSERS - We will conceal your identity.
2) CURRENT SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELOR WHO TREATS TEENS AND YOUNG
ADULTS WHO ABUSE HEROIN.
3) A FORMER DRUG DEALER WHO CAN TELL US WHY THIS IS THE NEW MONEY MAKER.
4) A CURRENT OR FORMER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER FAMILIAR WITH THE HEROIN TRAFFICKING EXPLOSION.
5) THE FRIEND, BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND, PARENT OR FAMILY MEMBER WHO LOST SOMEONE CLOSE TO A HEROIN OVERDOSE.
If you fit the description and would like to come on the show, or would like to recommend someone for the topic, please reach out to me ASAP via EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you more details.
