John Herrera started experimenting with marijuana at just 11 years old. Then, at age 16,  the New Mexico native tried heroin for the first time. Unfortunately, he got hooked on the drug pretty quickly.

Now, almost 10 years later, he's been on the road to recovery for two years. Watch more of his journey below in a video produced by "A Dose of Reality: New Mexico."
