Many States Seeing a Spike in Heroin Deaths

Heroin is a powerful opioid and popularity of the drug has dramatically risen over the past couple of years in many areas.

The increase in popularity is partially because heroin can be obtained very easily anymore. The powerful opioid heroin is also relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of strong prescription painkillers like OxyContin or oxycodone and these prescribed pain relieving medications aren't as easy to get.

Heroin has not only become more popular among opioid users, the demand for the drug has also increased so the availability via drug dealers continues to increase as well in many areas.
