A commonly abused drug in the United States, heroin is illegal and highly addictive. A member of the opiate family, it is derived from the opium poppy plant and is made from morphine. Heroin addiction is a rampant disease that claims thousands of lives every year and is only getting worse, as many people are reaching for heroin as a last resort drug to feed their prescription painkiller addiction. In the past few years, nearly 80 percent of users attributed their use to prescription opioid use. Therefore, prescription opioid use is one of the risk factors for heroin use. If you are addicted to heroin or know someone who is addicted, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible.
