DRUG MIX FEARS.
COCAINE users are turning to heroin to unwind from their weekend buzz.
Carlow Drug Prevention Co-ordinator Angela Keogh said: "This is the harshest, most destructive and most physically addictive drug around.
"More people are taking coke at the weekends and so more people are buzzing or strung out and unable to sleep on a Sunday evening. They feel they need to unwind before the week starts again."
Ms Keogh said the descent into addiction was accelerated when heroin was brought into the mix.
