A Mum has shared shocking before and after photos showing her son’s downward spiral after he became addicted to heroin and meth.
Heartbroken Jennifer Salfen-Tracy shared pictures of Cody Bishop after she hadn’t heard from him for weeks and they reveal the toll the drugs took in just seven months.
In the pic taken before, seven months earlier, he looks fit, healthy and happy but in the second one he is barely recognisable after living on the streets of Las Vegas.
He is shown sitting in the back seat of a car and his skin appears to be covered in bumps and grazes, while his haggard face betrays his desperate situation.
“The face of heroin and meth…… is reality for so many people and families in this world today,” said Jennifer.
“These pictures were taken seven months apart. That is how fast someone is affected. Let’s get a hold of this issue America and help each other.”
“My oldest son is suffering from his addiction. I am hesitant on sharing but many people ask how things are going so I feel I should share. I have learned along this path that so many people and families deal with the same heartache but just do not talk about it.”
Ms Salfen-Tracy said the contrasting images represent “a true issue in our world today”. Through social media, the mum said she had been able to look out for her son but was now praying for him.
