RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Last June both of my younger brothers in their mid 20's told me they were addicted to heroin and came to me for help. I immediately tried to get them into treatment but found it diffiuclt to get them into the system. It is exspensive about $330 a month for methadone.
It would be nice if you could say some more about the physical addiction that heroin causes. There are actual biochemical changes that take place. The body makes more opiate receptors in response to drug use over time, this is why tolerance occurs.
I also had a good friend from childhood die from a heroin overdose a couple years ago. This made the situation with my brothers a lot more difficult and scarry.
