Anyone else live in a place where OD's take place, a lot?

So, I'm from a small town in KY. (now, I live in MD)

However, numerous people I've went to school with has overdosed on drugs. Some I just went o high school with, never was close and others I was close to.

Yesterday, I get word that a guy (year behind me in HS) overdosed. He had a fiance, a little boy and soon to be step daughter. He comes from a wealthy family, the girl comes from a wealthy family. And come to find out, he was taking Opiana or something like that.

I really feel sorry for the children, but his fiance had to have known he was taking that. They found the pills in his pockets, and I suppose they done bloodwork and found an ungodly amount in his system.

So, my second question, would you put up with this?

  • and to the second question, theres nothing you can really do about it. someone needs to want to help themselves, otherwise its almost certain how it is going to end.

  • In my town there are a lot of overdoses. Most of them are heroin overdoses. I personally wouldn't put up with it but there are lots of people who would.

  • There are a lot here too. Not like next door or anything, but seems like every day on the news you're hearing about someone dying from drugs in the area.

  • Oh- I forgot to add that I wouldn't put up with that at all. I don't want myself, let alone my kids, around ANYONE who does drugs. Period.

  • I don't know anyone who has, but high school was a long time ago for me lol. I would not tolerate drug use in a partner, for so many reasons! Illegal, a lifestyle I don't want my children to see! The end (od possibly). She (the fiance) had to know.
