(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 31, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- The Orlando Sentinel reports Mayor Teresa Jacobs- in conjunction with the Orange County Sheriff's department and Sheriff Jerry Demings- announced on August 17th- a new plan to reduce the recent resurgence of heroin use in Orange County and neighboring Osceola County.
The announcement comes after a seven month attempt to renovate a stretch of Semoran Blvd. known as "Heroin Alley." In that span of time the Orange County Sheriff's office has made 13 arrests and issued 12 warrants after undercover officers addiction treatment center in Orlando, FL successfully purchased heroin, cocaine, and pills 25 times along the strip between Colonial Drive and Curry Ford Road. The plan includes 20 leaders in the community who will devise educational programs with a focus towards students in order to prevent use amongst younger generations.

The increase of heroin use has been attributed to the 2012 closure of multiple doctor's offices that were exposed to be pill mills supplying drug dealers in Orange and Osceola counties, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

As with other diseases, prevention is the preferable method of treatment to any type of substance dependence, but especially so with extremely dangerous drugs like heroin and Flakka.Through educating children and the general public about the dangers of drug use and abuse, Orlando can erase the stigma of drug addiction and reveal the reality of the disease.
