Heroin addiction is so powerful, an addicts need to use is put above everything else in their life, including their children's safety. Cydney Craft, a mother from Indianapolis faces serious charges according to a recent NBC news report. The woman smashed her vehicle into another car because she overdosed on heroin. Cydney wasn't in the vehicle alone, she had a one year old child and a 6 week old infant in the backseat at the time.

The NBC news article states the responding officer reported Cydney Craft "was drooling and snoring", drooped against the steering with the engine still running. The officer found various drug paraphernalia including heroin and a syringe that still contained the drug. After medics administered Narcan which is a medication that helps to reverse the effects of heroin overdose, the woman told the authorities she injected the drug at an apartment close by.

This just shows you how dangerous and powerful heroin is and how drug use can destroy lives. Cydney Craft was arrested and Child Services are caring for the two small children. Sadly, drug addiction seriously impacts everyone's life, including innocent children.
