Abstract:

Heroin isn't a drug only for the rich and famous. Like cocaine in the 1980s, heroin is now attracting the middle class. This ABC News Turning Point porgram examines why some of the most unlikely people have become junkies, like the All-American Boy Scout who "just wanted to try it" and the housewife who was "just going to try it one time". ABC News correspondent Meredith Viera talks with Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, who describes what is was like to be down - and to come back up and recover. She also speaks with DEA officers, who ware of the growing epidemic of heroin addiction and to a drug dealer who explains that snorting heroin is gaining popularity because there is no danger of AIDS from dirty needles. The program also explains why the Columbia drug cartels are finding heroin so much more profitable than cocaine. Some of the addicts in this program have recovered, other are recovering, and others still feed their habit while assuring the world they'll recover sometime. The message of this program is clear: heroin is so addictive that you can't just try it. If you can't say no, you'll forever be saying yes.
