Drug Abuse Rally Fights Heroin Problem
Posted April 7th, 2014 @ 10:53am by Ohio News Network- Kevin Landers

Washington Court House is trying to fight back against what they call a heroin epidemic in their community. Police say at least 5 to 6 people have died from possible heroin overdoes in the past three weeks - and they've seen triple the number of overdoses.

More than one hundred people gathered outside Washington Senior High School Sunday to find answers on how to attack the drug problem. In Washington Court House, people say everyone knows someone who has tried heroin, using it or has died from the drug. 

The police chief says he needs more officers on patrol, the community says it needs more education to warn people about heroin use, and parents are just scared their child may be the next victim of a heroin overdose.
