November 10, 2013 – Breaking down the shame: Jews and the myth around addiction – Haaretz
November 8, 2013 – UPDATE – 11/10/13: The Isaac family is very grateful for all the kind words and support they have received. The CBS segment was a 4 minute “awareness” piece and was edited from approximately 45 minutes of interviews. After viewing the segment, it was apparent that the awareness piece did not include some important messages made during the interviews.
The family would like to emphasize the following points:
* Heroin use is tragic regardless of the community or age group that it strikes.
*Areas that had not seen a heroin epidemic are now seeing it in their areas and it is affecting younger people. In that sense, the “face of heroin use has changed”.
* The parents vigorously dealt with their son’s situation, including the use of marijuana, and never condoned it.
