Heroin Addiction Treatment

Treatment For Heroin AddictionHeroin addiction is an epidemic in our country. Many people who are already addicted to prescription opiate painkillers are now turning to heroin, due to availability as well as a reduction in cost.

Heroin is illegal and highly addictive. Derived like all opiates from the poppy plant, heroin is usually found in powder form. Heroin users either snort, smoke, or, most dangerously, inject the drug.
