As an addict, i'm sure its helpful to know that someone wants to help you instead of judge and criticize you. I feel like reporting it as a public health issue will help the community understand the importance of how serious the problem is but more importantly what it is and reasons as to-why people do it. Its also educational. It gets reported pretty often as a criminal act, or seeing people getting arrested and put in jail for using the illegal substance. I feel like DeMio's report is just about the people showing she cares and not that its just a report. When she describes whats going on in the court room she explains what she sees and how they look and how they feel and when she describes it, it sounds as a public health issue other than a criminal issue honestly.

Cincinnati Enquirer's decision to cover the heroin and opioid epidemic as a public health issue instead of a criminal issue is just what it is. People get addicted to opioids through doctors mainly, because there are plenty of crooked licensed doctors prescribing these drugs to people. Sometimes even when these people don't really need these medications, the doctors still prescribed them anyways. Terry DeMio's approach to this story was well thought out and inspiring. She said the key to doing these is credibility and trust. The people have to understand that she and her newspaper care about them as people and not just a story. Since her community trusts her and her newspaper, they are more willing to let her inside their world for a more accurate representation of them. In her article she goes on to describe what some of the defendants look like when they walk into the courtroom after being arrested for heroin, and she says they look as if "their bones will poke through their skin. Their eyes sunken, their hair a tangled mess. Some are unsteady on their feet. Others scratch at sores on their arms." To me, that sounds like a public health issue rather than a criminal issue. I think this huge story that DeMio has put together will have a positive influence on her community, because they see how unhealthy their neighbors and friends have become. They hear about the overdoses and how they affect their families,just like the two sons, two moms, one week portion of the article where they go on to describe how broken the mother was when she found out her son had died of overdose.

The Cincinnati Enquirer made that decision to cover the heroin and opioid epidemic as a public health issue because addiction is not a crime. it takes two people to commit a crime. The people that it takes to commit a crime is the suspect and the victim. The heroin or opioid addict is not committing a crime because he or she is putting his or her life in danger. If the heroin or opioid suddenly got in a vehicle and drove down the road and got someone hurt then that would be a crime because there is a victim. Dealing with heroin and opioid addiction as a public health issue will save money and prevent prisons from filling up. The Enquirer would influence the community to help addicts get proper rehabilitation in order to break the addiction. If that happens then the addicts will not get themselves or someone else hurt.
