Heroin Addiction

Heroin Addiction Treatment in New York

Heroin is an illegal narcotic that is made from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of certain poppy plants. Heroin can be a white or brownish powder, or a black sticky substance known as “black tar heroin.”

Heroin enters the body quickly and is extremely addictive. It can be smoked, injected, or snorted. Heroin affects the brain by increasing levels of a chemical called dopamine. Dopamine is responsible for pleasure and reward, and it is released when people do things that make them feel good such as eating food, drinking water, listening to music, or having sex.

Heroin causes profound changes in the brain and body that result in addiction, tolerance (needing more heroin to get the same effect), and dependence (needing heroin to avoid feeling sick).

Heroin is a highly addictive drug that has had a devastating impact on our communities in Brooklyn and New York City. It is a powerful opiate that can quickly create addiction in its users, and can often lead to criminal activity to support the addiction. Heroin use has been on the rise in recent years, and it is taking a toll on our city.

The NYPD has been working tirelessly to crack down on heroin dealers and users, but the problem seems to be getting worse. Overdoses in New York City, Brooklyn, and surrounding areas are increasing. Most of these overdoses occur in Brooklyn, which has been hit the hardest by the heroin epidemic.

Heroin addiction is a serious problem that requires treatment and support. If you or someone you know is struggling with heroin addiction, please reach out for help. There are many resources available to those who need them, and we must work together to put an end to this devastating epidemic.
