Find Heroin Addiction Help and Treatment
Part of the reason heroin is so addictive is because it reaches the brain extremely fast and affects the user psychologically and physically. Heroin is addictive because of the neurochemical and molecular changes in the brain that take place when the drug is used. When a rush is experienced, surges of dopamine are produced which is the chemical responsible for the rush of euphoria and pleasure experienced. The rush can be so intense that a person can't wait to achieve the high again so they repeat their use. Over time, tolerance takes place and the dose they used in the beginning is no longer enough to achieve that same intense rush, so they have to increase their dose. Quitting Heroin use will require Heroin Detox to overcome the Withdrawal symptoms.
