In the last 30 years with the outsourcing of jobs including good paying manufacturing jobs...people have lost hope. Without hope and a future folks will turn to drugs. Drugs are ruining families and communities. I applaud this woman's efforts and all of those that work everyday to turn this around.

Mud, addiction is way more complicated than lost jobs.....

tagup - I agree, people self-medicate and it gets out of control. Locking people up does little to turn this around. We need to help people who are addicted.

Yamhill county jail has a really bad drug epidemic INSIDE the jail, but the jail will not admit it. So locking them up, just gives the more access to drugs.
