The people at Teensavers bring you stories about drugs affecting the community.     We’ve seen an explosion in prescription drug and heroin use the last several years.

Recently, the Chicago Sun-Times has been consistently reporting on the epidemic going in Illinois, and the drug dealings along the so-called heroin highway.

Heroin can be found in nearly every community.

Is it as readily available as marijuana? Of course not.

But it can be found, if a person makes an even half hearted attempt.

Heroin users aren’t bad people. They are people who typically get hooked on prescription drugs. Nobody wakes up and says, “I’m going to try heroin today.”

Heroin use comes as a need. Addicts, hooked on opioids, are desperate to continue their fix, but they often cannot afford 10, 25, 100 pills a day.
