Sen. Katie Stine reviews Kentucky congressional week

For over a year, I have read tragically similar stories about families and friends losing loved ones to heroin addictions, overdoses and deaths. While Kentucky has made strides in reducing illegal prescription drugs, drug abuse remains a scourge that fractures families and hurts our economic health, safety, and quality of life. Police cite heroin as a major contributor to the increase in burglaries, theft and prostitution. The heroin tsunami has swept over the Northern Kentucky community and inundated our health delivery services as it continues on to flood the rest of the state.
