In late March 2015, four Nashville residents were found dead within a four-day span. All four died of heroin overdose and were known or suspected drug abusers. This sent authorities into the streets, searching for heroin dealers in attempt to prevent additional deaths. Heroin creates such a strong addiction that most users will seek out the drug even though they realize every injection is a threat to their life. What many don't realize is that drug dealers don't test the drug before selling, so one bad or extra potent batch could lead to multiple deaths. Police believe that was what happened with these four Nashville deaths.

The Battle Rages On In Nashville
The Nashville police force carried out Operation Safer Streets over the first weekend of August 2015. They seized close to 13 grams of cocaine and 1.5 grams of marijuana during the operation. Police are also actively enforcing a DUI initiative under which hundreds of suspected drunk drivers have been arrested.
These efforts may help reduce the number of drug overdoses and car fatalities related to drunk driving, but it can't bring back the four Nashville residents found dead in March 2015. Not only does addiction take the lives of addicts, but it causes chaos within families and disrupts the lives of many bright, talented members of our community.

Rehab Can Be Confidential
For many individuals who are addicted to drugs or alcohol, the entire issue surrounding rehab can be difficult to deal with where other people are concerned. There is certainly no reason to be embarrassed about having a disease that you have little to no control over, but with that being said, privacy is still a serious concern for many patients.
It is important to keep in mind that it is definitely possible for your rehabilitation experience to be completely confidential. In this case, traveling for rehab is usually in order.
