Heroin Still Kills Recap
If you or your children went to CCPS, you are familiar with the Heroin Kills video shown at schools. This was an excellent program that helped teach our students the dangers of using heroin. In order to help teach, a new generation of students the consequences of drug use, Carroll County State’s Attorney Brian DeLeonardo and the Carroll County Health Department helped produce a sequel, Heroin Still Kills.
The movie premiered on January 22nd, and was a great success. Thank you to our partners in Carroll County that help us take on the Heroin Crisis effecting our State.
