Heroin Intervention in Oregon
Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs used among drug users today. The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that as of 2011 over 4 million Americans over the age of 12 had used heroin at least once. Currently, Oregon is experiencing a continued surge of heroin use and for this reason remains identified in the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program (HIDTA).
Heroin addiction can present many long-term problems for users, including development of liver disease, infections of the lining around the heart, collapsed veins, and a number of other health related issues that go beyond the destruction of being able to maintain a normal life.
