Who Answers?

Heroin Drug Abuse

Written by: Editorial Staff.

This video depicts the progression of heroin addiction. It starts by showing the first-time use of heroin and how it can develop into a full-fledged addiction. Many addicts start self-medicating due to mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem.

For example, in the video, the character felt that she did not belong to a party and tried to escape it by getting high on heroin. With time, the dependence on heroin only grew.

How Drug Abuse Progresses?

The video shows the progression of addiction, showing the character needed more and more heroin due to increased tolerance. The heroin addict in the video goes through feelings of guilt and loss of self. She decided that she could do better than that but couldn’t hold onto this thought for a longer period.

It’s evident from the video that she didn’t ask for help from anybody and kept everything to herself, which worsened the situation even more. For those suffering from heroin addiction, it is important to seek help through a detox or treatment center.
