Heroin Facts:

Heroin is highly refined drug originating from the poppy plant. Opium is taken from the poppy grown in the Middle East, South Asia, and Mexico for production of morphine and heroin. Heroin is a highly addictive opiate, coming from opium. A little known heroin fact is that Laudanum, or heroin mixed in with alcohol or other tonics, was sold by pharmacies, doctors and ‘snake oil salesman’ as a cure-all to Americans and Canadians in the early 1900’s. Bayer, manufacturers of aspirin, produced medicines or tonics containing heroin for children with sore throats. Codeine, a synthetic opiate, is used widely in cough medicine today. Codeine is often used by heroin addicts when they can’t get heroin.

Heroin and Addiction Treatment:

Heroin was first developed to aid doctors to treat severe pain in their patients. Some Doctors also used Heroin extensively in the early 1900’s to treat morphine addicted soldiers. Other heroin facts include the claim by drug promoters that Heroin was not addictive. Insightful doctors and professionals cancelled this claim 10 years after widespread addiction to heroin occurred. Detox is needed to get addicts off of heroin. Methadone, a synthetic opiate used as a legal heroin substitute and sometimes called heroin detox treatment, has also been claimed to be ‘not addictive’ and also has had that claim cancelled by health professionals.

Important Information on Heroin Effects:

Some heroin effects include an intense high, especially when injected, followed by a low that often makes the user quite sleepy, or nod off. Heroin is considered a depressant, a drug that slows the metabolism, breathing and heart rate down. Heroin fact: heroin use can result in overdosing, meaning the heart and breathing stops and the heroin user dies unless someone acts fast to medically revive the person. Other heroin effects can include hallucinations, and a dream like reality about life. The heroin user sees life as more of a mixture of thoughts and reality – this is called escape. When facts become too difficult to confront, heroin use produces a different reality for the user. Troubling Heroin information reveals that some drug users trying heroin for the first time became heroin addicts the next day. Withdrawing from heroin is a fact that all heroin users must face sooner or later. Withdrawing from heroin without help results in severe cramps, muscle spasms, sickness and pain for the heroin user or addict. Withdrawal pain keeps heroin users going back to heroin even though they don’t want to.

“I have been drug free for
2 ½ years and with no desire or thoughts of ever using drugs again”

“My addiction started early on. I was drinking at an early age and by the time I was 16 years old, I was experimenting with drugs. I married a man that was a heroin addict and in turn, that’s what I became.

“My life of crime also started early because I had to maintain my drug habit. I became quite infamous; my first conviction was in 1971 for breaking and entering. A few years later, I was the first person ever arrested under Crime Solvers in the mid-70s. I was in and out of prison five times. Two of those times, I did 6 years…

“My family was upper middle class until I totally depleted their finances through my years of legal fees, bonds, and restitutions.

“I had given up. When I first got here [Narconon], I just knew that this place was going to help me because the technique they use here is real and made total sense. This is one program that I completed successfully…

“I am a respected and mature adult,
with a family who believes in me again…”

“I became aware of my addiction when snorting Oxycontin was not enough anymore, and I began to shoot it. Prior to that, I participated in recreational drug use since the age of 14. I went through the progression that one hears about so often; pot and alcohol, to LSD and ecstasy and cocaine, and ketamine, pharmaceuticals and then heroin.

“The last years of my heroin addiction were the scariest times I could ever imagine anyone going through. I stole, lied, spent most of my day in the pursuit of opiates, and did all the terrible and pointless things that addicts do.

“I decided that I needed to get help that would actually work. I did not want to do another 12 step program that would make me feel like I would never stop using and my life was just an endless cycle of relapses.

“Anyone who’s done the Narconon program could tell you of the carefully laid out steps that guide one to an ultimately empowered and aware state where one’s life becomes so much clearer.

“…there is really no other program out there that will change a tired and hopeless addict into a productive, happy, and sane individual again.

“I am a respected and mature adult, with a family who believes in me again. I am married to a moral and upstanding man…I am healthy and clear about my future…

“For anyone out there that is struggling with addiction and wants to be free, for anyone who has a loved one or a neighbor or friend that needs a permanent solution, there is a program that will help once and for all.”
