Treatment for Heroin Addiction Near Austin
Heroin is an opiate derived from the seeds of the Asian opium poppy. The drug usually comes in a powder form or a sticky substance known as black tar heroin. It is typically smoked, snorted, or injected and all three methods produce a fast and intense rush, known as a “high”.
