One of the greatest (not meaning good) aspects of heroin addiction is the addiction potential of the drug. the addiction potential refers to the rate at which a substance changes your state of being and how quickly the drug gets across the blood brain barrier. Heroin unfortunately does this at a faster rate than most other drugs.

Heroin is a drug that goes hay-wire on a persons brain and the receptors within the brain. Heroin also harms a persons brains ability to create natural dopamine, while completely doing a 360 on a persons psychological chemisty. Because of this heroin is one of the hardest drugs to get off of and get intro recovery from.
