Addiction is a chronic disease that deeply affects the way our mind and body functions. It is not uncommon for the byproducts of addiction to result in negative outcomes in almost all areas of someone’s life. Addiction is a progressive, fatal disease, but treatable.
For many people, heroin is the last opioid many people try. What starts out as opioid prescription leads to buying illegal heroin from the streets. Prescription users become physically dependent on highly addictive opioids, but can no longer obtain a legal doctor prescription. People also use it to number their pain of anxiety or depression. Heroin is also much cheaper than other opioids. What used to be described as a low demographic street using drug has affected all walks of life across the country.
Heroin is a dangerous narcotic that is highly addictive and is typically injected, snorted or smoked to produce a euphoric state. Regardless of the method of ingestion, repeated use of heroin can lead to extreme physical and psychological dependence.
