Heroin addiction and his dangers

Heroin is an illegal and highly addictive substance. It is both the most abused and rapidly acting type of the opiates. It is typically sold as a white or brownish powder or as the black sticky substance called on the streets “black tar heroin”. Although purer heroin is becoming more used by heroin addicts, most street heroin is “cut” with other substances or with sugar, starch, powdered milk, or quinine. Street heroin can also be mixed with strychnine or other poisons. Because heroin abusers do not know the actual strength of the substance or its real contents, they are at high risk of overdose or death. Heroin also poses special problems because of the transmission of HIV and other type of diseases such as hepatitis that can occur from sharing needles or other injection tools

Heroin abuse in United States

Heroin is readily available in most large metropolitan areas and, to varying degrees, in suburban and rural markets throughout the country. Although overall abuse levels for heroin are lower than levels for other drugs, including cocaine and marijuana, the consequences of heroin abuse are far reaching in terms of heroin-related deaths, treatment admissions, and emergency department mentions. Since late 2005, the suspected number of heroin-related overdose deaths involving fentanyl has been indicative of the risks attendant to heroin abuse, including inconsistent purity levels and diluents and adulterants that can cause serious and often fatal consequences. Demand for heroin in the United States is largely driven by a well-established population of roughly 800,000 hardcore heroin addicts. Overall, demand is relatively stable, with gradual increases noted in some user populations. The physical need for opiate abusers to obtain opiate-type drugs to stave off withdrawal has led some addicts to switch from prescription drugs to heroin. Anecdotal law enforcement reporting indicates that abusers of pharmaceutical opioids, primarily OxyContin and methadone, but other drugs as well, have switched and continue to switch to heroin, particularly when heroin is more available and cheaper.

Heroin on the Market

Anecdotal law enforcement reporting also suggests that, despite NSDUH data that indicates the number of heroin initiates remained significantly unchanged from 2002 through 2004, the number of high school and college age students that are abusing heroin is increasing, particularly in the eastern United States, where many of the abusers began abusing OxyContin before switching to heroin. This trend will most likely continue, as increased law enforcement efforts to curb the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs will make prescription opiates more difficult to obtain.

The price per gram of heroin is usually 8 to 10 times that of cocaine on US streets. Usually in Europe (except the transit countries Portugal and the Netherlands), a purported gram of street heroin, which is generally actually between 0.7 and 0.8 grams light to dark brown powder consisting of 5-10%, less commonly up to 20%, heroin base, is between 30 and 70 Euros, which makes for an effective price of pure heroin per gram of between 300 and 2000 Euros.
