Heroin Addiction and Rehab

General Information:

Heroin is an opioid drug that is synthesized from morphine. Morphine is a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky substance, known as “black tar heroin.”

Prescription Opioid Abuse: Prescription opioid pain medications such as Oxycontin and Vicodin can have effects similar to heroin when taken in large doses or in non-prescriptive ways. They are currently among the most commonly abused drugs. Research now suggests that abuse of these drugs may open the door to heroin abuse. 

Opioids that bind to receptors and activate them are referred to as “agonist” drugs (such as morphine and methadone). Those that bind to receptors but do not activate them are called “antagonists” (such as naloxone and naltrexone). Partial agonists (buprenorphine) bind to the same receptors but have less of an activation effect.

Drug Specific Withdrawal Symptoms

The person's prior experience of withdrawal can indicate how severe withdrawal is likely to be. Heroin users may exaggerate their drug use or withdrawal severity out of anxiety; and in the hope of receiving sufficient medication to alleviate expected symptoms. Therefore, history should be supplemented with physical examination, and with regular monitoring and review.
