Nearly a hundred people overdosed on heroin in the first half of 2013 in Cuyahoga County alone. Half live in the suburbs. And a quarter of all fatal drug overdoses in Ohio in 2011 involved heroin. We'll talk about the progression from pain killer addiction to heroin junkie and hear from a Vermilion mom who lost her 26 year old son to overdose. Originally aired 9/11/13.
