This is the true story of Linda Couch and her relentless battle to save the life of her brother, Eric, from an addiction to heroin.
This video also shows there are other victims of drug abuse: sisters, fiancées, parents, friends and kids. We see clearly that the claim "I’m not hurting anyone but myself" is nothing but a lie.
"Using home movies, re-enactments and moving testimonials, the Drug Wars series effectively manages to demonstrate the horrors of addiction without ever coming across as corny or preachy. Most tragic in this video is the effect of Eric’s death on the 7-year-old son of his fiancée, a young boy who looked up to Eric as a role model - proof once again, that drug abuse is not a victimless crime. Like its predecessor, Drug Wars - Crank County, this is highly recommended."
"This video needs to be seen by everyone in treatment."
Dick Cortwright, Addictions Recovery Center
"This video takes the war on drugs to a very personal and emotional level. It had a strong impact..."
