A Missouri woman whose family has been devastated by her eldest son's addiction to heroin and meth shared a heartfelt post on Facebook that has now gone viral.

In the Facebook post, Jennifer Salfen-Tracy included photos of her son, Cody Bishop, that she says were taken just seven months apart.

Bishop was an athlete and graduated from Wentzville Holt High School in 2011, KSDK reported. According to Salfen-Tracy, Bishop is now homeless and living in Las Vegas. It has been weeks since she last heard from him.

Bishop said she was hesitant in sharing her son's challenges, but that drug addiction is a "true issue in our world today that we need to pull together and focus on to fix instead of the government worrying about and spending all their money on throwing each other under the bus."
