Heroin Addiction


Heroin addiction can be fatal, claiming thousands of lives every year. It’s no longer exclusive to veteran addicts, for even suburban teenagers have begun to experiment with the drug. In-patient treatment is almost always necessary to overcome heroin addiction.

Heroin comes from the poppy plant. In the past, it was used as a pain management drug, until doctors and patients realized how addictive it could be. All it takes is one hit for the brain to become hooked.

Heroin can be injected, snorted or smoked. No matter how you ingest it, it will enter the bloodstream and cause instant feelings of euphoria, and then drowsiness. Long-term heroin use leads to liver and kidney disease, infection and lung complications. Heroin overdose is a major risk as well, since it’s difficult to determine whether the drug has been laced with other substances.
