Heroin Found Inside Puppies

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

The drug game has reached an all time low with this newest discovery. Officials found ten labrador puppies implanted with liquid heroin recently. This comes after a two year investigation into a Columbian drug ring, ending with the seizure of the ten puppies. Officials report that the heroin inside the puppies was going to Florida, North Carolina and other U.S. states to satisfy the growing heroin problem.

How Do I Know If My loved One Needs Rehab For Heroin Abuse?

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

It has been found that some people, after years of heroin abuse, have managed to hide their addiction from the people closest to them. Drug and alcohol abuse hurts not only those using heroin, but family members and loved ones as well and the only way to restore these relationships and handle the substance abuse problem is by identifying the problem and getting the addicted person into a drug rehab.

There are many physical signs of heroin abuse. SOme of these include loss of appetite, or any changes in eating habits, unexplained weight loss, slowed or staggering walk, poor physical condition, awake at unuaual times, unusual laziness, re, watery eyes; pupils smaller than usual; blank stare, cold sweaty palms; puffy face, blushing or paleness, runny nose; needle marks on lower arm, leg or bottom of feet (for IV users), nausea, vomiting or excessive sweating.

Along with physical changes, many people abusing heroin will go through mental and emotional changes as well. SOme of these can include a change in overall attitude/personality with no other identifiable cause, changes in friends new hang-outs; sudden avoidance of old crowd; doesn’t want to talk about new friends; friends are known drug users, change in activities or hobbies, a drop in grades at school or performance at work; skips school or is late for school, a change in habits at home; loss of interst in family and family activities, forgetfulness, general lack of motivation, energy, self-esteem, “I don’t care” attitude, moodiness, irritability, or nervousness, appearing to be unreachable, secretive or suspicious behabior, unexplained need for money, stealing money or items, change in personal grooming habits and posession of drug paraphernalia.

Please note that just because a person exhibits some of these symptoms it does not necessarily mean that are using heroin. A more foolprrog method of drug detection is a drug test that can be purchased at any local pharmacy.

Drug abuse does not have to go unhandled. There is a solution. If you or anyone you know is in need of a drug rehab program that gets results contact Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650.

Anthrax Found In Heroin

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Anthrax, a deadly disease commonly found in animals was recently discovered in batches of heroin. It has already killed six people and infected at least 12. Unfortunately the amount of contaminated heroin is unknown, as is the source. Officials are urging anyone suffering from drug or alcohol abuse to seek help immediately to avoid being infected by this disease.

Heroin abuse is one of the hardest addictions to overcome – the only real, effective solution is drug and alcohol treatment. Narconon Louisiana, one of the leaders in rehabilitation works with clients to eliminate and handle cravings. Most addicts will tell you that one of the reasons why it is hard to overcome a heroin addiction is because of the intense cravings that heroin causes the body to have. These cravings can be eliminated by detoxifying the body from all harmful drug residue. 

Instead of playing Russian Roulette with life, addicts need to enroll in effective, long-term rehabilitation. If you or anyone you know is in need of help please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650.

New York Pamphlets Aid Users – Not Help Them

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

A pamphlet aimed at intravenous heroin addicts that is distributed in New York is raising questions regarding its intention and effectiveness. 

The pamphlet is a guide to injecting “safely”, although some people view it as a how-to guide. Readers get tips on what the best way to shoot up is without collapsing veins, how to use a cotton in the cooker – things that make injecting heroin easier and almost normal or ok.

In reality, heroin abuse kills almost 600 people a year in New York and is an epidemic spreading across the country. A how-to guide is not going to handle heroin addiction – an effective drug rehab program will. Instead of focusing our attention and money (New York tax payers paid $32,000.00 to print and distribute these pamphlets) on how to make users more comfortable, we need to focus our attention on getting individuals into rehab.

Rehabilitation for drug or alcohol addiction will save a person’s life. Rehabs like Narconon Louisiana make it possible for addicts to live the life they were always intended, not the life of addiction.
