Heroin Addiction

Suboxone Treatment Clinic Can Help You Detox from Opioids

Heroin Addiction & Abuse

Heroin is a potent opioid with a powerful effect on the brain’s reward system. Heroin rigs this reward system by influencing the production of feel-good chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine and endorphins.

Out of everyone who tries heroin for the first time, nearly one in four become addicted.

In normal circumstances, the brain releases these chemicals to reward behavior necessary for survival, like eating and helping people cope with pain. However, when a person is using heroin, the brain quickly links heroin to the activation of these chemicals in the brain reward system. Eventually, the user becomes addicted and can’t function without the drug. This, along with the withdrawal symptoms of heroin, makes it hard for users to quit on their own.

Understanding Heroin

Heroin is a highly addictive painkiller synthesized from morphine, which comes from the seeds of the poppy plant. Because poppy plants are used to make opium, any drugs derived from them are considered opiates. Both heroin and morphine are opiates. Heroin is also known by names like junk, smack, or “H.” Street heroin is often combined with dangerous additives like morphine or the powerful pain reliever fentanyl. Symptoms of prolonged heroin use can include severe itchiness, depression, and collapsed veins.

Approximately four million Americans have tried heroin at least once in their lifetime.
