Spawned from the mass distribution of prescription opiates, the use of heroin has skyrocketed in recent years, and it seems to be affecting everyone.
Heroin, also known as diamorphine, is the most highly addictive form of opiate. It is primarily consumed for its euphoric effects and pain relieving properties. Long term use of heroin creates extreme physical, as well as, mental dependency which can lead to low blood pressure, digestive problems, disorientation, coma, and death. In recent years, deaths due to heroin overdoses, have sky-rocketed. It is now quite common in the United States to know someone who is currently, or has been, addicted to heroin.
