Heroin Use Growing in the Pocono Region

Whether it is a minor looking for their first high or an adult seeking pain relief, the number of people using prescription drugs is increasing. Although once hooked, it can be difficult to continue to fuel the habit so they are turning to something else, something easier to get, and the answer would be heroin. The number of heroin use and related crimes has grown in the Pocono region. It has outnumbered all other illegal drug use in Monroe County, PA. Since street level heroin can be purchased for a quarter of the cost of prescription drugs, addicts are turning to heroin to fuel their need to get high.

Addiction can happen to anyone, and the important thing to do is get into treatment for it. Recovery needs to be the number one priority in your life.
