Penn researchers use MRI to study drug addiction - "MATTHEW ELLIS started popping painkillers as a teenager and switched to heroin a few years later. It was simple economics, and a common progression among today's opiate addicts - the recreational drug dabbler turned full-time junkie. That's usually when the nightmare takes hold.

"I was hopelessly addicted to heroin," said Ellis, 25, a carpenter's assistant and father of two young boys."
