This one hits close to home for me. I was Keith's age when I was homeless in Hollywood and I was addicted to drugs with no end in sight.
Keith is open about being addicted to heroin. When the market crashed Keith lost his job in the housing industry. He was addicted to pain killers and started to use heroin because it was cheaper.
Before you judge Keith you should know drugs like heroin and crack cocaine will completely take your life away. Alcohol can too, but drug addiction is much worse. Keith talks very candid about the grip of heroin on a life. It takes your life away.
Keith may sound like he enjoys street life, but really listen to what he is saying. He is not happy and wants to get out. Listen to his first wish. He just does not know how to stop heroin.

About Invisible People:
Since its launch in November 2008, Invisible People has leveraged the power of video and the massive reach of social media to share the compelling, gritty, and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, layoff victims and others who have been forced onto the streets by a variety of circumstances. Each week, they’re on InvisiblePeople.tv, and high traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, proving to a global audience that while they may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.
Invisible People goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nation’s most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath – its founder – and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on InvisiblePeople.tv shatter the stereotypes of America’s homeless, force shifts in perception and deliver a call to action that is being answered by national brands, nonprofit organizations and everyday citizens now committed to opening their eyes and their hearts to those too often forgotten.
Invisible People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.
