Opioid (also known as an opiate) use can be traced to well-meaning physicians who have boosted prescription rates for painkillers. Prolonged use leads to dependence and, once hooked, you need greater doses to prevent withdrawal symptoms. Addiction to painkillers frequently leads to heroin addiction because the black market drug is cheaper and easier to get than prescription painkillers.

Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky substance. Heroin can be injected, inhaled by snorting or sniffing or smoked. Heroin addiction is a chronic relapsing disease caused by changes in the brain and characterized by uncontrollable drug-seeking, no matter the consequences.
