Erik, 32, was living with his mom when she found out he was using heroin. “At first she was very angry about it,” he says. “But I sensed that the anger was more curiosity.” So he asked her, “Are you so pissed because you want to try it?”

“I feel guilty about introducing heroin to my mother’s life,” admits Erik, who says his mom begs him for heroin as soon as she wakes up. “I hate everything about it.
