ST. GEORGE -- St. George is battling a growing heroin problem. The drug task force has already seized as much heroin in the last seven months as it did in all of last year.

The state has reduced funding for heroin addiction programs even as more people are seeking treatment.

Officials say the heroin issue is just part of a bigger prescription pain medication problem.
