“It comes out of pure love:” G’s Angels creates awareness, hope in face of drug crisis

"Everyone who lines up to run the Key Biscayne Half Marathon October 1 – or any distance race – will have a reason. Fitness, fun, meeting a goal. For one local family, there’s even more to crossing the finish line after those 13.1 long miles: a chance to remember a loved one lost too soon, and along the way raise awareness about the opioid epidemic that is sweeping the nation and South Florida. Linda Salcedo and son Roberto founded G’s Angels about six months ago in honor of Guillermo Salcedo, son to Linda and big brother to Roberto."

"G’s Angel es una fundación creada para ayudar a personas que han caído en el mundo de las drogas. Su origen se debe a la promesa de una madre a un hijo que no pudo sobrevivir a la adicción. “Lo traté de ayudar, pero no lo pude salvar”, dijo Linda Salcedo, quien aseguro que diariamente mueren en EEUU 91 personas por adicción a las drogas."

Local Leaders Reinforce DOJ’s 3-Step Approach To Opioid Epidemic

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Roberto Salcedo has great memories of his older brother Guillermo.

“He was always very analytical, smart, very studious,” he said.

The two went to Gulliver Prep and Guillermo went on to college. Somewhere along the way, he found drugs.

“Pretty much like the last candidate you’d think to become an addict,” said his mother, Linda Salcedo. “I know that he did oxycodone and from oxycodone, I would imagine, he went straight to heroin.”

At 25, he overdosed on heroin laced with fentanyl.

“He passed away 21 days later,” she said. “I was able to say goodbye and I give thanks to that.”

Experts are calling the rise of opioid and heroin deaths an epidemic.

“According to the CDC, heroin-related overdose deaths have more than quadrupled since 2010,” said Benjamin Greenberg, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

Greenberg hosted a townhall meeting Thursday at Booker T. Washington High School to inform the community of the deadly spread of heroin, opioids and fentanyl. Two panel discussions reinforced the Justice Department’s three-fold approach to the epidemic by raising awareness, highlighting the best uses of police enforcement, and deploying resources for treatment.

“Unincorporated Miami-Dade County, last year, we had 84 murders,” said Miami-Dade Police Dir. Juan Perez. “We had over 270 deaths related to heroin overdoses. That paints the picture right now.”

The DEA said drugs on the street are stronger than ever.

“We see fentanyl mixed with cofentanyl, mixed with heroin and cocaine, and it’s amazing to me that some people survive even consuming some of this stuff,” said DEA Assoc. Lab Director Agnes Winokur.

Many overdose without even realizing what they took.

“When you’re buying heroin from a dealer on the street or someone else, you don’t know what you’re buying,” said DEA agent A.J. Collazo.

Police point out that they can’t “arrest our way out” of this crisis. It will take prevention and effective treatment programs, as well.
