The heroin epidemic is NJ is real. How real? You don't need much more proof than this call from a desperate mother in south Jersey who was looking for help for her son.

While I was joined by the Center for Great Expectations, a mom named Kathy called in with a serious problem. Her son is 28-years-old and addicted to heroin.

Kathy was extremely emotional as she explained that her son is an addict. Kathy stated "He's addicted to heroin and I can't get him to stop."

This is a tough story. Kathy speaks for many mothers across the state who are fighting to keep their children alive and away from drugs.

Listen to Kathy's full call in the video above.
