FOX28 special coverage on substance abuse

Posted:

Tonight's episode of Glee dealt with a heavy topic... the death of a beloved character and actor.

Actor Cory Monteith who played Finn Hudson on the hit FOX show died in July. Officials say Monteith died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol. He'd been open about his struggles with addiction, admitting he started using drugs when he was just 13-years-old. Monteith spent some time in rehab earlier this year and his friends say they thought he was doing better.

We touched on several topics related to substance abuse Thursday night, including new research showing just how big a problem it is in Indiana and Michigan.
