High school students who use heroin often abuse other drugs as well.
That’s according to a new study from New York University.
It showed teen heroin users took an average of five other drugs like prescription painkillers, anti-depressants, and alcohol.
Those who frequently abuse heroin were most likely to misuse multiple drugs.
In fact, nearly three out of five heroin-related deaths in the U.S. involve at least one other drug.
