Description

The Daily Herald examines the quiet infiltration of heroin and "club drugs" into Chicago's western and northwestern suburbs. Their investigation found that heroin and club drugs such as ecstasy and meth were responsible for the deaths of 13 suburban teens and young adults. Parents in many of the communities were unable to spot the drug usage before it was too late; while authorities are unable to stop the flow of drugs into the suburbs because the source of many of the drugs is unknown. The series deals with how teens and young adults by and get hooked on drugs as well as the effect it has on their families. The reporters also look into the efforts being made at stopping the drug influx and how teens are rehabilitated.
