Someone get Kimberly some help, Fentanyl is scary stuff, 10X more potent than morphine!!

She'll be dead soon. When they get to the point of eating patches, they're beyond help.

lol, karma.

She is only 19, there is hope for her! I've seen worse addicts that were far older turn their lives around.
What is scary is the first time someone eats one of those patches could be the last thing they do. Some body systems just can't take it and they die quickly.

I agree, never give up on someone so young.

^^^..... so does that mean you will pay the thousands of dollars in rehab for her? I didn't think so..... lock her up and let her suffer a few months of withdrawls in a crowbar hotel!!

Bravo Bad Dog! Enough with the bleeding hearts! Let them pay for rehab and care for these druggies!Work camp jails is what we need!

Really?? People complain about seeing the same names over and over again in the police beat, but then people complain about the cost of treatment programs?? Obviously this young woman needs help to overcome the addiction she has, and I think that dollars put into treatment are well spent!! Compare it to the cost of sending her to jail and it really doesn't look that bad. Aristotle has often been quoted as saying you can judge a nation by the way it treats its most vulnerable citizens.

It really is truly amazing how one community can have so many different views on a subject like this one. Good thing we don't make the decisions on what the outcomes are for these people!

You may not agree with what has been done by the person. But why all the judging? It makes no sense.

Be thankful that she was helped in time. Now, perhaps with a scare like this, she just might want to turn her life around. You don't know that. And even if she didn't, even if she went right back to where she was, what business is it of yours?
People really need to back off and shit the hell up.

The next bad day you have at the office, or at home or wherever, I am more than sure you wouldn't want everyone around you speculating on how bad of a person you are because you showed your emotion of frustration towards other people.

Believe in hope rather than hate.
Believe in change rather than chained up.

If it was a family member of yours, most definatly you would be on the front lines getting any avenue of help possible.
