As reported by CBS News in the article The New Face of Heroin: Today's Users Different Than Decades Ago(5/28), a recent study has found that the demographic statistic of modern-day heroin users differs from users of the 1960's. According to the study, the most significant difference was found in gender and location. While both young men and women living in suburban and rural areas commonly abuse heroin today, it was only common for young men in urban areas to abuse it in the past. The study also found that one of the most common underlying root causes to be an original addiction to prescription pain killers. In an attempt to fight the current heroin epidemic that is sweeping America, researchers have began looking into the root causes of heroin addiction.
“Heroin is one of the most common reasons why so many people end up in drug and rehab centers”, said the head of the Substance Abuse Help Group, an organization that runs several websites aimed at providing help with drug addiction. “Heroin is a very bad drug to get into because people who are hooked often need to undergo a rapid drug detox. Detox processes can tend to be hard and painful but since heroin is such a powerful drug, it is often the only way. Though, it is great to see that experts are looking to identify the root cause of the problem. That will lend a big helping hand to fighting the epidemic.”
