There is no doubt that America is in the grip of a heroin epidemic.
In 2019, heroin overdose caused over 12,000 deaths across the United States. Perhaps more alarmingly, fentanyl, a drug that dealers cut heroin with to make it more potent, was responsible for at least 30,000 more.
Heroin addiction is terrifying for everyone concerned. Heroin quickly hijacks our natural reward system, making the thought of using it almost irresistible. Our brains and bodies become dependent on heroin to function, and we experience excruciating withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop on our own.
Families and friends watch powerlessly as heroin infiltrates every aspect of their loved one’s life. However, heroin addiction does not have to be a life sentence. You will find it reassuring to know that over twenty-two million Americans are in active recovery, and that number increases every day.
