Heroin Intervention in Maryland
Heroin, a drug derived from the opium poppy plant, is a highly addictive form of morphine. The drug’s addictive qualities can never be stressed enough. It is said that this insidious drug has a 23% addiction rate and has become even more popular with young adults and teens due to the refinement of the drug allowing for easier snorting and smoking.
Those who try heroin never intend to become reliant on the drug; however, after regular use in a short period of time, users find their lives turned upside down by a need to do more and more.
Heroin users face some of the harshest and fastest declines among drug users. Addiction to heroin often leads to a breakdown in personal relationships, an in ability to continue with school or employment, and many times leads to time spent in prison. We know just how difficult it can be to convince a loved one who is addicted to heroin to seek help in the form of treatment.
