Heroin is an extremely addictive Opioid drug that's synthesized from Morphine.

Heroin can be snorted, smoked, or injected and usually comes in a white or brown powder substance. Its estimated that almost of all people who use Heroin once become addicted. Teen Heroin Abuse is a growing danger in our youth. The image of a listless young heroin addict collapsed in a filthy, dark alley is obsolete. Today, the young addict could be as young as 12 years old, play video games and enjoy the music of his generation. They can appear smart, stylish and bare none of the common traces of heroin use, such as needle marks on their arms.

Because it is available in various forms that are easier to consume and more affordable, heroin today is more tempting than ever. The number of teenagers aged 12 to 17, who used heroin at some point in their lives has increased by 300%. A young person who might think twice about putting a needle in his arm may more readily smoke or sniff the same drug. But this is falsely reassuring and may give one the idea that there is less risk. The truth is that heroin in all its forms is dangerous and addictive.
