This Is What Happens When Someone Stops Using Heroin

Heroin addiction is treatable, and an addict can overcome it. As with every other disease, the addict needs medical attention and support from their friends and family.

According to the latest world drug reports, 12 million of people around the world inject drugs. In 2014, 47,055 overdose deaths were reported in the US, which was the highest number in its history. We constantly see stories in newspapers on young couples who overdosed, hear about the growing numbers of youngsters and adults using opioids, including heroin, and it is time to raise awareness in order to be able to help.
