Young Teens at Risk of Herion AddictionAlbion, MI – Narconon Freedom Center Intake Counselors report program enrollees who are seeking help with heroin addiction are younger than previous years.  Currently, the demographic of program starts is shifting more and more to 18 and 19 year old who are shooting heroin.  Prior years showed enrollees in their early 20’s.

“As Intake Counselor interviews are conducted on students doing the Narconon Program, we are learning that they started experimenting with nonmedical use of prescription pain relievers or Oxy in their early teens (13-15 years of age) and as the Oxy supply decreased they switched to heroin which is in greater supply.  Many said older brothers or sisters introduced then to heroin when they were asking for Oxy,” said Brian Kuehne, Executive Director of Narconon Freedom Center Michigan.  Read all about it… http://www.prweb.com/releases/Narconon-Freedom-Center/Younger-Heroin-Users/prweb11072616.htm
