Police Release Graphic Photos To Show The Devastating Effects Of Heroin

The US is currently embroiled in a heroin epidemic. In 2014, addiction to opioid painkillers and heroin contributed to more overdose deaths than any year on record in America: over 47,000.

To put this into perspective, the number of gun deaths in America per year is around 34,000.

According to the CDC, the heroin-related overdose death rate increased 286 percent from 2002 to 2013.

A police department in Ohio just gave everyone a firsthand look at the awful impact of this epidemic.

It shared unsettling photos of a man and a woman who were passed out in a car with a child in the backseat.
