Heroin in the headlines
Addison foundation wants to talk about the deadly drug
ADDISON – When Louie Theodore Miceli died of a heroin overdose at 24 years old, his family vowed to change the conversation about the drug that’s taken a growing number of lives in Chicago’s suburbs by creating the Addison-based LTM Heroin Awareness and Support Foundation in his name.
“[People associate] heroin addicts with people in the back alley, with homeless people,” Louie’s older sister, Kristen Gutierrez said of the misconceptions people have about heroin addicts.
“That era is over,” she said. “It’s football players. It’s cheerleaders. It’s the kid next door. My brother was the kid next door.”
