Dr. Arnold Washton, Co-Founder, Compass Health Group, says high-functioning individuals who have been addicted to prescription painkillers such as OxyContin and Percocet are now turning to heroin as a way to get that same "high" as they did with pills. Dr. Washton says heroin is not only easier to obtain these days than prescription narcotics, but it is less expensive and its effects are felt more quickly, since it is usually inhaled through the nostrils rather than swallowed.
...
"In addition to the high street cost of prescription painkillers, many OxyContin users have turned to heroin because it is easier to snort, giving them the feeling they want in less time," Dr. Washton said. "It is very atypical for business executives and professionals - the types of people that Compass Health Group treats - to be using heroin, the quintessential 'street' drug. Nearly all of these patients are snorting the drug, but some do switch to injecting it as they build up tolerance and snorting no longer produces the desired effect."
Dr. Washton encourages anyone who is currently addicted to opioid drugs to seek professional help from an addiction specialist. "Drug abuse greatly affects not only the life of the person who is addicted, but the lives of those around the addicted person," he said.
