Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin Addiction Help in Essex & London

What Is Heroin Made From?

Heroin is an opioid drug. It’s made from morphine which is a natural substance found in the seed pod of opium poppy plants usually grown in Southeast and Southwest Asia as well as Mexico and Colombia.

Heroin in appearance can be either white or brown powder. It can also come in the form of a black sticky substance that’s referred to as black tar.

What Is Heroin Addiction?

Many begin using heroin for the initial sense of wellbeing and pleasure however, these supposedly appealing effects are actually far from reality. Use of heroin results in extremely toxic short and long term risks to not only your physical but mental wellbeing.

How Is Heroin Taken?

  • Heroin is usually used via injection.
  • It can also be sniffed, snorted or smoked.
  • Some will even mix their heroine with crack cocaine.

Due to the highly addictive nature of heroin however, it doesn’t take long for an addiction to start and the need for help to treat heroin addiction.
