"Voices from Juvenile Detention: Kids Behind Bars"

18 of 40

The nightmare that is detox. Gabriel, 15-years-old detoxing from an overdose of pills in the Webb County Juvenile Detention Center. The first three days of withdrawal from drugs are a living nightmare: The user experiences deep anxiety and physical and emotional pain. He should be in a treatment facility, but in juvenile detention there is only an empty cell. His body writhing on a concrete floor. It is a cold and traumatic ordeal.
