Heroin Addiction

Why Dhaka Residents Find Effective Heroin Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Dhaka

Heroin is derived from the opium poppy, which is produced largely in countries bordering Bangladesh, such as Myanmar and Afghanistan. Due to its close proximity to opium producing areas, both opium and heroin are drugs commonly found in Dhaka, and both are extremely addictive. Without proper opiate addiction treatment, abuse of these drugs can quickly lead to extreme negative effects in a person’s life, including death.

Opioids are the family of drugs that include opiates (drugs derived from the poppy plant, such as morphine, codeine, heroin and opium) and synthetic opiates (such as methadone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl). Prescription opioid painkillers like OxyContin are increasingly being abused in Dhaka and around the world as they provide similar euphoric effects to that of heroin and opium. In most cases, the pills are ingested orally, or crushed and then snorted. Heroin can be snorted, smoked or injected, and while the most common method of using opium is smoking, it can also be consumed as a tea.

Death by overdose is common with all opioids, as the user develops a tolerance to the drug quite quickly, meaning they need more and more of the drug each time to reach the desired effects. Opioids depress the central nervous system, which controls our ability to breathe and keep the heart beating. Opioid overdoses are most often the result of respiratory depression.

While most opiate or heroin addicts begin and continue their use because of the intense euphoria and the rapid effects of the ‘high’ virtually all continue using to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Because the tolerance for heroin increases very quickly, eventually the using is not so much about feeling good, but to avoid feeling bad. A common misconception is that heroin is physically addicting to the point where a person is in danger and cannot physically function without it. The reality is, that although heroin detox is physically and psychologically uncomfortable, it is not actually life-threatening
