Thank you for story on heroin addiction

To the editor:

Thank you Ben Meiklejohn, Terri McLeod and the others who contributed to the very sad story about heroin addiction in the Feb. 12 Sentry, “Heroin’s fatal grip worsens a mother’s pain.”

There are so many frustrations and sadly, regrets for most of us involved with or touched by this challenge. My heart goes out to Ms. McLeod and so many others. Addiction is driven by the chemical composition of the brain and needs to be dealt with as a medical condition and not a moral shortcoming. Shame on Gov. Paul LePage – again.
