What Exactly is Heroin?

What Exactly Is


Heroin is regarded by many as being the most addictive drug in the world, as it comes with a high risk of overdose and death for users. Heroin is also part of a larger, serious substance abuse problem, as people who are addicted to alcohol are two times more likely to be addicted to heroin, and those already addicted to other opioid painkillers are 40 times more likely to be addicted.

Heroin is one of the most well-known opioid drugs and is made from the opium poppy and can come in the form of white or brown powder, or a sticky black substance. Though it can be smoked or snorted, most heroin users inject the drug into their veins.

Heroin is fast-acting, and after it’s injected the user will feel a sudden rush of euphoria and other intense feelings associated with pleasure as a result of the drug reaching the brain. Some people feel that time has slowed down and that they’re in a dream. Because of its ability to help people cope with anxiety and other stressors, many people who become addicted to heroin suffer from a mental disorder. In fact, one study found that 75 percent of heroin users had mental health issues like depression and bipolar disorder.

How Does Heroin
Addiction Develop?

Heroin addiction is often the next step for people addicted to prescription painkillers because it is generally cheaper and does not require a prescription, making it easier to obtain. Unfortunately, when an opioid or opiate addiction reaches the point of heroin use, an addiction to heroin can happen quickly due to its high potency. It is not uncommon for a person to develop a heroin addiction after only one or two doses.
