  1. Mr. Tiberii,

    Thank you for covering this topic. I am a student in Human Services Technology, Substance Abuse track at GTCC. This is a tragedy. I hope in the future I can find some way to bring needed resources to the organizations working with these populations. Do you have any ideas?

    My instructors have been describing this problem on the rise in High Point and I was excited to hear about it from your story. It made my classroom experience real. Again, thank you for bringing your story to WUNC.

    Kind Regards,
    Cherie Bohaboy
