The shocking face of addiction – two photos, seven months apart |

A US mother has posted on social media a shocking photo of her son decimated by heroin and meth.

Jennifer Salfen-Tracy has taken to Facebook to show the effects of addiction on Cody Bishop in photos taken just seven months apart.

The mother from Missouri says Bishop is living rough in Las Vegas and that she hasn’t heard from him in two weeks.

“Hearing how bad he is doing is hard but not hearing at all is worse. The unknown is what makes a person not sleep at night,” wrote Salfen-Tracy.
