Heroin addiction, like any other type of chemical dependency, has its own issues. To begin with, heroin is a derivative of morphine, which is a drug in the opioids class. Basically, what this means is that both heroin and morphine get their start from certain types of poppy plants that produce a substance that when processed, can become a highly addictive drug.
What makes heroin different from other morphine-derived drugs is the fact that the most common methods of taking the drug into the body is through "snorting" (taking the drug in through the nose) or through injection, usually directly into a vein. Both routes of administration cause the drug to enter the bloodstream very quickly, so the effects are felt almost immediately. Unfortunately, the fast route of administration also means that the addiction centers in the brain can be stimulated faster, resulting in a quicker, stronger dependence on the drug.
The staff at Shady Pines Heroin Recovery is aware of the addictive properties of heroin, and is ready to help Jackson, Alabama, residents and those who live in surrounding areas overcome heroin addiction. They do this by employing different types of treatment methods.
