You’ve undoubtedly experienced the euphoria and crippling withdrawal symptoms of heroin addiction. These symptoms occur because the drug is binding to specific MU-opioid receptors in your brain, creating a rush of dopamine, the brain chemical that’s responsible for feelings of pleasure and well-being. Over time these rushes of dopamine reinforce your drug-seeking behavior, and you find yourself unable to stop. Heroin addiction puts willpower up against brain chemistry, which is usually a losing battle without proper treatment and ongoing support. Over time, these cravings will only intensify and it will get harder and harder to get off of this drug.
