Heroin is an
illegal, highly addictive opiate drug. Its abuse is more widespread than any
other opiate. Heroin is processed from morphine, a naturally occurring substance
extracted from the seed pod of certain varieties of poppy plants. It is typically
sold as a white or brownish powder or as the black sticky substance known on
the streets as "black tar heroin."
One of the
most detrimental side effectst of heroin, is heroin addiction itself. Heroin
addiction is a chronic problem, characterized by compulsive drug seeking and
use, and by neurochemical and molecular changes in the brain. Heroin also produces
profound degrees of tolerance and physical addiction, which are also powerful
motivating factors for compulsive use and abuse. As with abusers of any addictive
drug, heroin addicts gradually spend more and more time and energy obtaining
and using the drug. Once they are addicted, the heroin abusers' primary purpose
in life becomes seeking and using heroin. Heroin literally changes their brains.
