how deeply Jan feels each word of this book. Her gifted writing
draws you in and allows a personal view of heroin addiction’s
powerful and painful affects on addicts and their loved ones.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants an intimate
look inside the world of heroin.”

“Jan Nargi pulls the curtain back and exposes the truth of
teen heroin addiction. This can happen to any of our children!
Beautifully written, yet painfully real, this book is gripping.
Whether you’re a parent dealing with the same struggles,
or a reader looking for an honest and compelling read,
I highly recommend There is no Hero in Heroin.”

Soaring Above Co-Addiction
Jan Nargi, a single mother of two, is a registered nurse who worked in enough ER's to know the signs of addiction, but failed to recognize them in her own son. Through her popular blog, There Is No Hero In Heroin, she has exposed the reality of teenage heroin addiction, allowing other family's to benefit and learn from her experience. An active member of Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, and several online addiction recovery groups, Jan's credentials are in the field of hard knocks.
