A Behavioral Health Technician at Recovery Associates’ Christian Drug Rehab Center states, “People who are unfamiliar with just how powerful some of these drugs are underestimate the potential dangers. They see this tiny pill and assume that because they use 5 bags of heroin a day that it’s no big deal, that they can handle it. The consequences can be tragic.”
