Summary

In recent years, abuse of heroin has risen and heroin-related imagery has influenced pop culture. This highly addictive and extremely dangerous opiate narcotic affects the brain and body and can be difficult to quit.

Discussions about addiction, treatment, and medical problems associated with heroin use, such as infectious diseases, are also covered. Dramatic "you-are-there" case studies show how heroin impacts real life, and sidebars offer supplementary facts, compelling statistics, and historical information.

Chapters include:

  • Overview of Heroin
  • History of Heroin
  • The Opium Poppy
  • Psychological and Biological Effects of Heroin
  • Heroin Addiction
  • Treatment of Heroin Addiction
  • Heroin and the Law.
