Heroin is an opiate drug and is highly addictive. It is illegal in United States, (Interestingly, it is legal in England where it’s prescribed for pain) and is therefore available only on the streets. It is a felony to possess Heroin in the USA for any reason. If a person uses Heroin off the street, one main thing to know is that it’s impossible to figure out how much Heroin is actually contained in the street sample. That is due to the fact that, street drugs are not standardized and the doses are not regulated in any way. For that reason, a person using Heroin may accidentally use too much and overdose and die. In addition, other dangerous drugs may be mixed with the Heroin, leading to deadly consequences by the user.
Sometimes, drug dealers give their customers a high dose on purpose, which often results in the person dying. This is known as a ‘Hot Shot,’ and is occasionally utilized by drug dealers to kill someone they have a problem with. In order to help a person with an addiction to Heroin, the person needs to want the help in first place. There can be something called and INTERVENTION. An intervention involves having the family and friends of the person with the addiction, all gather around with the goal of having the person end up in treatment. If an intervention is not successful, it may be possible to commit the person to a treatment facility. You want to coordinate this with the Chancery Court in the county where you live.
