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.

The Dangers of Heroin

Like all drug addictions, heroin can cause negative physical and behavioral symptoms that lower the quality of life for the user and have the potential to derail their relationships and jobs. People who use heroin over time will develop issues like insomnia, abscesses, liver and kidney disease, collapsed veins, mental disorders, sexual dysfunction, and irregular menstrual cycles.

Additionally, people who are addicted to heroin may find it difficult to perform at work or school, which can quickly lead to unemployment or dropping out. This, added to the fact that many people with addictions will spend all their money on the drug, creates financial instability. People with addictions will also withdraw from their relationships.

Some other dangers associated with heroin addiction include:


Overdosing is a life-threatening event that occurs to many people with heroin addictions who use more of the drug in order to get an intense high. When people take too much of the drug, they may experience slowed or stopped breathing, which decreases oxygen flow to the brain and can cause severe mental damage if left untreated. Overdose can lead to coma, permanent brain damage, and in some cases, death. Heroin was responsible for more than 14,000 overdose deaths in the United States in 2019 alone.


People who inject heroin are at risk of contracting HIV or hepatitis C if they’re not careful to use sterilized needles. Many people with addiction will use heroin with others and have been known to share needles, which can be especially harmful to one’s health.

How We Treat
Heroin Addiction

When it comes to treatment, people with heroin addiction typically must first participate in a medically-supervised heroin detox program to flush the substance from their system in a safe and controlled environment. Heroin-addicted individuals often benefit from medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help them decrease their withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings over time. When you undergo MAT, you may be administered medication that can help ease your withdrawal symptoms.

Depending on the severity of your heroin addiction, you may experience the following painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when you stop using drugs:

Recovery isn’t complete once you’ve gone through withdrawal, though. Like most drug addictions, heroin addiction requires therapy so you can address the root of your addiction, learn about your triggers, and gain new habits and skills to help prevent relapse down the road. Feeling tempted to use again doesn’t make you a failure – it’s only natural. But when you go through our treatment program at Cedar Oaks Wellness Center, we hope you can leave feeling prepared to overcome any obstacles that threaten your sobriety.
