  • Fatal Overdose Risks Increase Due to the Abuse of Pure Heroin
    thought they would ever abuse an illegal street drug but because of their prescription drug addiction they re in need of a more powerful opiate Unfortunately today heroin is very easy to get it s relatively cheap and it s much more potent and powerful than ever before Pure heroin is beginning to circulate throughout the United States brought in by Mexican drug traffickers and has already been tied into many drug related overdoses and deaths The potency levels of some of the heroin that s circulating vary but some are as high as 90 to 95 pure Most heroin users don t know the true potency level of the drug they re abusing or what it s been cut with so they re unaware of the fact that their next high could be fatal According to newsnet5 com 5 deaths were related to pure heroin in Lorain County in a week s time TDN com talks about 7 pure heroin related deaths in Cowlitz County Foxcarolina com also talks about 4 deaths not so long ago related to a heroin overdose Teenage kids are using prescription painkillers to get high because they think they re a safer drug to experiment with and abuse They have no concept of where their abuse of pain pills like Vicodin or Oxycontin could eventually take them and that their future drug of choice could be a lethal dose of heroin Hopefully young people will start realizing that the dangers and serious risks associated with substance abuse are real and not just scare tactics to get our kids to just say no to drugs Heroin Detox Methadone Treatment Centers Alabama 334 649 3039 Arkansas 870 277 4314 Connecticut 860 986 7636 Florida 561 859 0771 Idaho 208 473 2876 Iowa 712 266 3564 Louisiana
