Heroin is an illegal and highly addictive drug that can be smoked, sniffed, or injected directly into the bloodstream. Heroin addiction has traditionally been considered a problem confined to desperate people and dark alleys. But today, it’s rampant throughout Georgia, afflicting teens and young adults from all walks of life. And four out of five of those addicted to heroin start by abusing prescription drugs.
