Heroin Addiction Rising With Prescription Drug Addiction
Though there are people who are addicted to sedative and stimulant medications, most people who are addicted to prescription drugs are dependent upon opioid painkillers like Vicodin, OxyContin, and others. These pills are very expensive, however, and the deeper addicts get into addiction, the more pills they need, and the less able they are to work and maintain an income to pay for the drugs.
When this happens, many look for a cheaper resource that can help them stave off the withdrawal symptoms. The easiest option is heroin. It’s cheap. It’s available everywhere. And there is no need to deal with doctors and pharmacists who may stop you from filling prescriptions. Unfortunately, it’s also made on the street using unknown toxins, always of varying purity which increases the chance of overdose, and is often used with needles that carry with them a host of dangers all their own.
