A survey from the Indiana Prevention Resource Center shows 2.1% of high school seniors have used heroin and that number is climbing. Bill Stanczykiewicz with the Indiana Youth Institute says that while that number may seem low, it's 50% higher than the national average.

Stanczykiewicz told WIBQ News that economics means that since demand is low, the price is low, making it more appealing to teens.
