Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is produced
from morphine which is derived from the Asian
poppy plant. The three types usually
appear as a black-tar and white or brown powder
heroin. Other names for the drug include Black,
H, Dope, Smack, and Chiva. Heroin use is very
dangerous with serious health consequences,
such as addiction, fatal overdose, HIV/AIDS
and hepatitis, and collapsed veins.
Regular use of heroin rapidly develops into a physical
and psychological addiction. Once addicted, individuals will find it
virtually impossible to quit without the help of a professional heroin
treatment program including heroin detoxification.
Withdrawal side effects caused by this opiate
can be agonizingly painful and take five
days for just the initial side effects to subside.
Typically a heroin addict will avoid the withdrawals
at all costs, even if it means risking their
health and freedom to procure more of the drugs.
There are many types of medical detoxification
procedures to reduce the painful comedown.
However, choosing the right method is critical.
Heroin rehab is a
common term used today which also describes Heroin treatment
and/or Heroin rehabilitation. Heroin
rehab centers and their treatments have become
more comprehensive, with the implementation
of many old but newly adopted holistic therapies.
