High school students who use heroin often abuse other drugs as well.

That's according to a new study from New York University.

It showed teen heroin users took an average of five other drugs like prescription painkillers, anti-depressants, and alcohol.

Those who frequently abuse heroin were most likely to misuse multiple drugs.

In fact, nearly three out of five heroin-related deaths in the U.S. involve at least one other drug.
