Once confined to the inner city, heroin addiction is on the rise in suburban and rural communities. This ABC News program shows how a growing number of teens and young adults are getting hooked on heroin through gateway drugs like OxyContin. After a suburban father describes the prescription drug habit and heroin overdose that took his daughter's life, a young mother in rural Ohio explains how she began that same perilous journey and can't quit. In addition to commentary from other teens and parents, the program includes expertise from Brian Crowell, a drug enforcement agent, and Joseph Califano, chairman of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse. Includes graphic scenes of heroin injection.
