A hospital in rhode Island sees more overdose related deaths this year so far than all year last year. One authority says that stronger street drugs and the influx of synthetic drugs are to blame. In the last five years, overdose admissions for opiates other than heroin have also doubled.
Heroin is one of the most addictive and destructive substances known to man today. Almost instantaneously addictive, heroin is known for not being just a “recreational drug”, but one that gets people hooked in and then destroys their lives.
