NightlineThursday, Mar. 11, 1999, 1 p.m. ETFor the second night of our three-part “Getting Straight” series, Nightline follows Bronx drug-treatment counselor Raphael Flores as he works with Cathy and John, two drug addicts struggling to get treatment and stay clean. 
In last night’s program Cathy, a mother of 8 children and a heroin addict for over 15 years, told Flores that she was serious about treatment because she’s “just tired” — tired of not having her life together. After much negotiating Flores was on the verge of securing Cathy a bed in a treatment facility. But during his 28 years of drug counseling he notes, most addicts “mess-up” the night before they are to go in.   Tonight Flores discusses whether or not his two “clients” can make it ‘til the next morning. — Rachel Grygiel
