Actually neither, they were a direct effect and sign of just how bad the heroin epidemic has gotten. With frequent overdoses, calls like these are becoming commonplace in many towns and cities in the northeast. In fact, heroin continues to be an epidemic across America, destroying lives in its wake.
“The United States averages 110 overdose deaths from legal and illegal drugs every day. The heroin death toll has quadrupled in the decade that ended in 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
