Summary

Although heroin use has decreased in the general population during the last few years, a troubling new trend is emerging. Use is up among school-age children and they are now subject to a popular culture in music and films that glamorizes its use. This trend along with increased availability and purity of heroin has created a major health concern for mental health workers and educators. This publication aims to present the latest research findings about heroin abuse and addiction. It explains about the known health repercussions that extend beyond the user. The health and social consequences of drug abuse in family, educational, and work environments have a devastating impact on society and cost billions of dollars. On a hopeful note, treatment for opiate addiction is more available and is becoming more effective. This publication provides information and guidance for health workers and educators in their preventive efforts in drug education. (Contains 24 references.) (JDM)
