The Doctors weigh in on the shocking and horrifying case of the mother accused of injecting her three kids with heroin.
A Washington state woman appeared in court this week to face charges of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance to a child, criminal mistreatment and child assault after a Washington State Child Protective Services investigation of the woman and the father of the children last year following reports of alleged heroin use in the home.
CBS affiliate KIRO reported that the kids were living in a home filled with drug needles, heroin and rat feces. According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the CBS affiliate, the mother and father allegedly injected the kids with what the oldest child called “feel good medicine," which he described as a white powder mixed with water to make them sleep. The affidavit states the injection was also referred to as “sleep juice” in the household.
Two of the children reportedly tested positive for traces of heroin, additionally bruising consistent with needle injections were reportedly found on all 3 of the minors.
The children were removed from the home in November and placed in foster care. The mother and father, who remain in custody, have both plead not guilty to the charges.
A stunned and shocked ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says of the story, “Unbelievable.” Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon adds, “Getting high as hit a new low. This is horrific.”
As The Doctors have discussed numerous times this season, the opioid drug epidemic is growing at an alarming rate and now appears to be affecting children in an entirely new and horrific way.
