Of all the dangerous drugs, one in particular is on the rise among Indiana teenagers, especially in the Evansville area.
The Indiana Youth Institute says once any addict sobers up, the struggle to stay sober is a real issue. It's a struggle 20-year-old April Siebenurgen had to fight in high school.
What does it mean that heroin is cleaner? Law enforcement officers say it's more pure and potent.

She says she's at peace with her addiction and is striving for the day her cravings stop.
