awesome.  my upper-middle class detroit suburb county -one of the richest in the nation - though perhaps not these days - officially has a big enough heroin problem to lead someone to create a facebook group about it, listing names of the kids who have overdosed and died, among other discussions and such. 

it has over 2,000 members, including 15 of my friends - and i believe its only 2 or 3 weeks old.

p.s. the group is 'oakland county: the damage done' after the neil young song that makes me want to rip my heart out so it can't be sad anymore

It makes me so sad to think of how many friends you've lost to overdoses and suicides. I hope your hometown can figure out how to keep so many kids from dying, and that you and they find some kind of peace.

The OC might be rich but...

"The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved."

I would guess that that poverty leads people to heroin. That or suburban ennui.
