An antidote to opiates’ scourge, one story at a time

Much gratitude is extended to the Globe for publicizing the extent of heroin overdose deaths in the Commonwealth (“Opiates taking heavy toll on Cape,” Page A1, Feb. 22). This terror seems to be at almost pandemic proportion. Keep typing; maybe someone will listen.

It will not bring my son back, but if your attention to this issue saves one life, it will console all of us who are in the same club — a club that expands its membership daily.
