A 2016 You Tube/ WEWS video depicts Akron, Ohio's, struggle. More than a thousand people gathered in there to fight back against the growing heroin epidemic that is gripping the city and Northeast Ohio. The community concern rose after the city endured in July 2016 fifteen OD's in a matter of hours.
