What is Heroin?
Heroin is made from morphine, which is derived from the opium poppy, and falls into the opiate abuse category. It is prescribed as a painkiller under the name "diamorphine" for patients recovering from surgery or who have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Heroin is also used for recreational purposes by people who enjoy the "rush" that using the drug gives them. Heroin is known on the street as "lady," "smack," "H," and "horse." "Smack" may be snorted or injected. View pictures here.
Causes of Heroin Addiction
"H" is addictive because using it causes the person to experience an intense "high." As the person continues using "horse," they develop a tolerance for the drug and must use more of it to achieve the same effects. When "lady" is injected into a vein, the user experiences a high within 30 seconds. If the drug is smoked, it takes longer to get the desired effect. People who snort "H" feel high within three-five minutes. When a heroin addict stops using the drug, they experience withdrawal symptoms, such as cravings for the drug, shaking, runny nose, and diarrhea.
Find a Heroin Rehab Clinic Local to You
When you are ready to get help for a heroin addiction, call a treatment center. The first step in getting off the drug is to have your condition assessed. You will need to go through detox first, so that your body is free from the physical effects of using "horse." Then you can start the treatment phase of freeing yourself from addiction.
Good Reasons to Stop Using Heroin
- Heroin has been used as both a murder weapon and a means of suicide by overdose.
- Using "smack" can lead to chronic constipation and damage the user's kidneys.
- Over the long term, "horse" can cause collapsed veins or an infection of the lining of the heart or its valves.
- Easily amongst the most expensive drugs, long-term use can have highly negative financial consequences that can take years to recover from.
- As these before and after pictures of heroin addicts show, the physical effects can be devastating.
