Man found collapsed after taking heroin has now gone ‘cold turkey’

Ballymena Court

A COURT has heard a man collapsed after taking heroin but came round when ambulance and police were called to the scene.

Stephen Richard Woodage (32), of Latharna House in Larne, said he paid £25 for drugs in relation to the June 26 incident and at Ballymena Magistrates Court he was ordered to do 75 hours of unpaid work after admitting possessing Class A drugs.

A defence lawyer said the defendant’s life has been “blighted” by drug addiction but he he had stopped using heroin by going “cold turkey” without any assistance.
