Gene Schabath, a former Detroit News reporter, writes about Families Against Narcotics (http://www.familiesagainstnarcotics.org/) in the Fall edition of the Macomb Now Magazine.
"This is a bona fide, community-based organization that has taken dead aim at the epidemic of drug overdose and drug deaths in "tidy" little communicities such as Clinton Township and Fraser," Schabath writes.
According to the story, Clinton Township District Court Judge Linda Davis and her neighbor who was a Fraser police officer voiced concern and united over the "drug overdoses of neighborhood kids spiraling out of control."
Alerting people to Percodan, Oxycotin and Vicodin - legalized forms of heroin - the writer notes that they're called heroin-light.
Christ United Methodist Church at 34385 Garfield in Fraser (between 14 and 15 Mile Road)
hosts FAN the third Tuesday of each month from 7-9 pm.
Former drug addicts and parents of children who died from drug overdoses speak at the gatherings, Schabath reports.
This epidemic merits attention of all local residents and beyond.
Another death of a teen to overdose is not what we need.
