As far as counties go, Lane County, Oregon is big. Roughly the size of Connecticut, 355,000 people call it home. Like any other county, it has its share of problems. Poverty. Drugs. Crime. Its approach to most social problems is the same as anywhere else: deal with it as best you can with the resources you have. But study after study has shown that adolescent and adults who struggle with depression, drug abuse and alcoholism are far more likely than others to have been abused or neglected as children.
