Addiction

Heroin is adsorbed quickly (comes to blood) with all administration ways. If intravenous injection, blood concentration peak is achieved during 1 minute at the latest, if inhalation or intramuscular injection – during 3-5 minutes.

Drugs

Heroin is the most often illegally taken drug of opiates. It evokes heavy forms of physical and psychic addiction very fast. Several injections of this drug are enough for a human to have addiction to and strive to take this drug further. So-called “street- heroin” is sold in form o white or brown powder.

Detoxication

Detoxication in the direct sense of the word is achievement of the condition free from drugs. Detoxication from opiates also mean treatment for abstinent disorders inevitable when drug is not taken.

Naltrexone

Naltrexone  is a strong and highly specific opiate antagonist. Naltrexone binds to opiate receptors and prevents from penetration of heroin, methodon, codeine, dentoxile and other opiates thereto.

Rehabilitation

Now, when You have passed detoxication and started administration of Naltrexone (or You have implanted Naltrexone preparation of prolonged effect), here is a difficult task standing before You – to learn think and behave Yourself to avoid intrusion of narcotics into Your life.

Alcoholism

Alcohol abusers are significantly more likely than non-drinkers to behave in a hostile manner, and also suffer from depressed mood, anxiety, intellectual degradation, and loss of motivation.
