Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroine: Is Treatment Possible
Heroin is one of the most common illegal drugs in the United States. It is popular in part for its relatively low cost and availability. A derivative of morphine, the high produced from heroin is similar to that of many prescription painkillers. While there are increasing numbers of overdoses, there are many people who overcame this life-threatening addiction.
How It’s Used
Heroin is deadly in itself, but the way it is administered is cause for many other diseases and deaths. It can either be inhaled or injected.
When first taken, the heroin blocks the brain from feeling any pain and only allows in the feeling of euphoria. For people who are depressed or have trouble feeling happiness, this drug serves as a short-term solution that leads to a long, grim path of abuse and addiction. Soon after the first use of the drug, the cravings begin for another hit. Then the drug is needed to feel normal and more is required each time until the addict is taking mass doses just to avoid extreme withdrawal. At this point, the user either continues gets professional treatment or spirals into an unstoppable addiction and eventually overdoses.
The cravings and mind altering effects are so intense that heroin users become desperate for the drug. They also become resourceful when they have to. They will share and reuse needles, quickly spreading blood-borne and sexually transmitted diseases. Deadly diseases such as HIV are rampant among addicts that use needles.
For someone who is addicted to heroin, recovery may seem impossible. When the high wears off, depression and hopelessness take over and motivation disappears.
Someone suffering from heroin addiction needs support and encouragement from the people around them.To escape the clutches of addiction, the user must leave the environment that imprisons them and seek help elsewhere.
