Heroin addiction can happen to anyone.
There are countless myths about addiction — and plenty of misunderstanding about who uses heroin — but the facts remain:
- Just a single dose can cause addiction
- The body builds tolerance to heroin quickly, so users need ever larger doses to get the same high
- Over 10,000 people die of an overdose each year in the United States
- Heroin overdose deaths increased more than 600% between 2001 and 2014
The first time you used heroin, you obviously didn’t intend to become dependent on the drug. But in no time, a dose that caused euphoria when you first started using barely stops the withdrawal symptoms. So, you need to take larger doses to experience the high you want or any high at all. Or, you may find that you are no longer getting a high but you need to continue using just to function. Unfortunately, you can never really know how much you’re taking — because a cut-up weak dose and pure heroin look exactly the same.
Between the need for increasing doses and confusion about their strength, heroin is responsible for more than half of all drug-related deaths.
But, heroin addiction doesn’t have to ruin — or end — your life.
