Heroin in CT suburbs

From the Courant's Grace E. Merritt:

Users are typically young and white and living in comfortable homes. Most, at least at first, don't even inject the drug.

"The more refined, suburban way of doing things is snorting it," Glastonbury Police Chief Thomas Sweeney said.

Cheshire's not mentioned, but:

In Southington, heroin claimed at least four young lives in the past two years

and some are trying to fight it:

Glastonbury and East Haddam recently held forums to warn parents that heroin has penetrated the sleepy suburbs.

I had heard that heroin had crept into CT suburbia, including Cheshire. But this is the first reporting I've seen of it.

A Cheshire Girl had a "bad" issue with heroin 3-4 weeks ago - had to be hospitalized. It is here and here large.
