We usually think of a heroin addict as some strung-out junkie with needle tracks and no way out. But today, there's a very different face of heroin. It's affecting all-American kids in suburbia who started by taking pain killers, often prescribed by their family doctors. Those pain killers then lead to abuse of heroin, one of the most dangerous and addictive street drugs out there. That's exactly what happened to Zack Johnson, from a suburb of Boston, and since then his life has been turned upside down.
