Quietly, 'cheese' heroin problem continues to plague young people in Dallas-Fort Worth

The headlines about "cheese" overdose deaths have faded, but Dallas-area treatment centers still struggle to keep up with a high number of teens as young as 13 addicted to the mix of heroin and sleep aids.  "It hasn't let up," said Janet Anselmo-Henson, manager of the Dallas County juvenile department's substance abuse programs. "Kids are still using, and they're starting at a young age. We're seeing several kids who have graduated to injecting heroin, not just snorting it."
