Heroin Addiction

Dealing With Heroin Addiction

Originally referred to as morphine diacetate, heroin is synthesized from morphine and is a derivative of the opium poppy. It is used as a treatment for pain in other countries and is a semi-synthetic opioid substance. However, here in the US, it is an illegal substance that is extremely popular among recreational drug users. Roughly 90% of the entire world’s supply of heroin originates in Afghanistan.

Undoubtedly, heroin is one of the most powerfully addictive substances in the world today as well as being an extremely destructive and painful addiction. Heroin is very popular due to its euphoric effects or the high that results from using it. Tolerance builds up extremely fast which leads to ingesting larger and larger doses of the drug in order to achieve the high that the individual first experienced. Eventually, the individual cannot function without using it on a daily basis, and more than once.

Heroin addiction treatment and recovery can be an extremely lengthy process depending on the severity of the person’s dependency on it. Consequently, you should be aware of the following consequences of heroin addiction:

  •  heroin addiction not only damages you emotionally, mentally, physically, and even spiritually, it devastates family members, loved ones, and other relationships
  • ingesting larger and larger doses of heroin can eventually be fatal and lead you to an early grave
  • there could be severe financial, legal, and social consequences in addition to the damage that you do to yourself on the aforementioned levels
  • your life will be controlled by heroin addiction and you will focus on obtaining more of the drug and risk losing your family, your friendships, your job, and your money
