Take a 16 Hour Online Drug Class Before Using Heroin

by Mike Miller September 26, 2013

Do you know someone who has tried heroin? How about someone who uses it regularly? Given the current surge in use with the drug, I would not be surprised if you knew a person or two who used.

As a counselor for both in-class and online drug classes I can tell you the number of students in my class who have tried heroin has gone up drastically in the past two years. As reported in www.nytimes.com.

Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs in the world. About a quarter of everyone who tries it becomes dependent on it. Users can quickly develop a tolerance, prompting them to seek more and more until the pursuit takes over their lives and, often, leads to ruin.

There are thousands of women, and men, out there prostituting their bodies just to support their addiction. One example is 23-year-old Theresa Dumond who lives on the streets of Portland, Maine. She lost custody of her two young children about a year ago and their father died. Nice chance at a childhood for her brood.

Heroin addicts lose interest in every part of their life except getting high. They lose everything. It is impossible to be a functional heroin user.

If you or someone you care about uses heroin, please seek help immediately. A 16 hour drug class is a good place to start. If you prefer to maintain anonymity, there are internet based drug classes available.
