Heroin addiction has been on the rise for sometime. It has not only taken over big cities, it has taken over everywhere. It is in high schools, and now starting to take over Jr. High schools. If you follow the trend of the rise of the disbursement of pain pills, such as Percocet, Oxy's, morphine, methadone and others, you will see the similar rise in heroin addiction. It does not take much to fall in this vicious black hole. Young kids take their parents medication, then they start searching. If you purchase pain killers on the streets, the cost is extreme. It is usually $1.00 per Mg, which is VERY expensive. So this is where heroin comes in. It's very cheap, and steals your soul. Many adults become addicted to pain pills, and before they even realize what happened, the pills are a part of everyday life. Many believe that because it's a prescription, it's justifiable. It get to the point to where our mind will create more pain, to justify higher doses. Don't let me mis speak. There are people out there that are in chronic pain, and very much need help. The part that bothers me the most is when people go get help, or to detox, our health care system has created a methadone maintenance program. To me, methadone is the legal form of heroin. Most maintenance programs are a year, and maybe more. Of course an addict is game for this. It has become a vicious circle. Who is to blame for this? I have my opinion, but this is a question for you to decide. I speak these words not from stats, but from experience.
