A Facebook post from a St. Charles County mom sharing her story about the addiction of her son went viral last week and posted an update on her son on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
Jennifer Salfen-Tracy shared her son’s photo before being addicted to heroin and meth as well as a current photo. The post has more than 60,000 shares and thousands of comments. Salfen-Tracy said the pictures were taken seven months apart.
Her son, Cody Bishop, was an athlete and graduated from Wentzville Holt High School in 2011.
The sharp contrast between the two pictures caught the attention of people, and the post was shared all over the world.
She provided an update on Tuesday after her son had been found.
“He is doing very well and actually looks better than the last time we have seen him,” the post said. “He is ready to get help and we are going to make sure Kate Privett gets some help also.”
