Hidden Compartments In Vehicles Make Heroin Smuggling Easier

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Hidden compartments in cars are the newest way drug traffickers are smuggling drugs. The compartments are becoming very sophisticated and often employ the use of a hydraulic system to make it even harder for police to detect the stash. To make matters worse, the way to open these compartments may be to turn the windshield wipers on and put the car in reverse. All kinds of drugs are being smuggled this way, but mostly it is heroin.

Heroin abuse has escalated to such a high degree that gangs are willing to risk their lives in order to make a profit on the sale of heroin.

Most heroin addicts have no idea how many people are involved in the sale of jut one bag of heroin – all these people making a profit of someone’s deadly addiction. However, in an environment where most of the people are rooting for addiction, there is a way out. Heroin addicts can save their lives by enrolling in a drug and alcohol rehab.

Narconon Louisiana is one of those rehabs that holds a 76% success rate for permanent recovery. If you or anyone you know is in need of help please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650 for more information.

Methadone Not The Solution For Heroin Abusers

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

We have all heard the horror stories of heroin addiction and the painful withdrawal symptoms that users experience. In an attempt to solve their heroin abuse problem, addicts may seek out methadone clinics. 

Methadone is a drug that is given to heroin addicts to prevent them from going through withdrawal symptoms. It works with the dopamine receptors in the brain, much like heroin, but without the euphoric rush that heroin induces. What some people don’t realize though is that the withdrawals from methadone are much more severe and long-lasting than heroin. So what ends up happening is that addicts, in an attempt to bypass the dreaded heroin withdrawals, reach for something that is 10 times more painful to get off of than heroin.

Methadone withdrawals are much like heroin withdrawals, except for much longer periods of time. Methadone addicts will experience sleeplessness, severe bone and joint pain, depression, cravings, anxiety, vomiting and nausea.

Anyone that is suffering from a methadone or heroin addiction should enroll in a long-term, inpatient drug and alcohol rehab immediately. If you or anyone you know is in need of help please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650.
