Elgin Alcohol and Drug Rehab Is the Best Choice for Lasting Recovery

It is rare that the person abusing prescription medication began taking these medications with the idea in mind of becoming an addict. In general terms, the person takes the medication to "feel better" physically, hoping they will gain some relief from their pain. Another effect of the medication is it provides people a feeling of "well being", which they have been lacking. In an attempt to reduce the pain even further and enhance the feeling of "well being", the individual begins to take additional medication. What happens is a tolerance to the drug is developed, so the person requires more and more medication. Soon, the feeling of "well being" can not be achieved, the pain although diminished is still present, but an addiction to the medication is now present.

If addicted, never discontinue the use of prescription medication on your own. There can be severe medical and psychological consequences. Please call Affordable Rehab of Elgin at call (312) 212-3025 and we will assist you in locating a quality healthcare professional or detox program.

How It Is Consumed

Heroin consumption can either be done through injection, snorting or smoking. Each method of consumption causes the same level of dependency and addiction. Heroin looks like a white or brownish powder or in the form of a black sticky substance more commonly known as black tar heroin. Heroin is not usually consumed in its pure form and has to be cut with another powdery substance such as: dehydrated milk, starch, sugar or quinine.

It may also be cut with poisons such as strychnine which poses a health risk to addicts. Since they dont know the strength of the ingredient that the heroin has been cut with, they are at constant risk of overdose.

Heroin addiction may even lead to HIV transmission among addicts since they share needles or other equipment.
