About this Article

Two years after heroin killed seven young people in Naperville, the community has decided a far-reaching problem needs an equally comprehensive solution. Attacking heroin from a unified front is the idea behind the city's revamped social services grant, which is funding three efforts to reach all segments of the community with heroin-prevention messages.
