Drug Rehab Treatment

Another medication which can be used is LAAM. It is also a synthetic opiate like methadone used for the treatment of heroin addiction. It can block the effects for up to 72 hours when taken orally. It eliminates the need for daily dosing and weekend home doses because of the longer duration for which it lasts. For this reason, it was approved in 1993 to be used for treatment purposes.

Although there are different treatment methods and drugs available for the treatment of heroin addiction, controlling the availability of this drug is a crucial aspect that needs to be stressed upon. In Columbus , the rising trend of heroin addiction attributes to mainly cheap availability of heroin which should be curbed in order to suppress substance abuse.

How It Is Consumed

Heroin consumption can either be done through injection, snorting or smoking. Each method of consumption causes the same level of dependency and addiction. Heroin looks like a white or brownish powder or in the form of a black sticky substance more commonly known as black tar heroin. Heroin is not usually consumed in its pure form and has to be cut with another powdery substance such as: dehydrated milk, starch, sugar or quinine.

It may also be cut with poisons such as strychnine which poses a health risk to addicts. Since they dont know the strength of the ingredient that the heroin has been cut with, they are at constant risk of overdose.

Heroin addiction may even lead to HIV transmission among addicts since they share needles or other equipment.
