Caption: Heroin user. Heroin user preparing the drug before injecting it. Heroin or diacetyl morphine is a white powder which is prepared for use by mixing it with water and heating it in a spoon. The drug dissolves and the solution is injected into a vein using a needle and syringe. Heroin induces stupor and narcotic sleep states in users. Long-term use causes dependence and tolerance leading to ever-increasing doses being taken, often resulting in fatal overdose. Heroin addicts who try to stop using the drug suffer from a range of withdrawal symptoms, including muscle spasms, cramps and psychological problems.
