Description of Picture:
This heroin addict just transformed herself from a pleasant-looking woman into someone barely recognizable. Such is the effect of drugs like heroin on its abusers. Aside from the surface impact of the drug on one's appearance, there are even worse effects that chronic heroin abuse can do. Every snort or shot of heroin brings them at greater risk of contracting HIV, infecting their heart lining and valves, liver and kidney disease and dying by accidental overdose.
