toll around the country - and massachusetts is right in the grips of it. between painkillers and heroin, the state has seen the highest number of overdose deaths ever. the police chief in one community is confronting the crisis with compassion rather than handcuffs. as kenneth craig reports from massachusetts, the chief has come out with an attention- grabbing message. gloucester police chief leonard campanello made headlines last year with his groundbreaking angel program that offers heroin addicts treatment - instead of arresting them. but despite the program's success - his city recently saw four heroin overdoses in just 24 hours. so campanello took to facebook. (leonard campanello/glo ucester ma police chief) we're trying to get across the fact that we're here to help and we're not going anywhere in a passionate posting - he spoke directly to addicts in his community, saying your life is more meaningful than your death.

illness. his post has reached more than half a million people. but campanello says he's not looking for recognition - just results. "i don't see an achievement in holding out a hand to help someone in need. i see that as a responsibility" campanello saves his anger for drug dealers selling for profit. - we see you, you leeches of human life, and you'll pay. in this life or the next. and he takes aim at the pharmaceutical companies that have flooded the nation with addictive painkillers. "i'm starting to believe - as a person - that pharmaceutical s are committing treason against this country. they're not becoming part of the solution." out of the four overdoses last weekend, police were able to resuscitate all of them - and settle three into rehab. kc, cbs news, gloucester massachusetts ((paul joncich)) > campanello's angel program has guided 375 addicts into treatment since the spring. ///
