The misuse and intentional abuse of opioid narcotic medications has skyrocketed and today treatment for addiction to painkillers and other opiates is more needed than ever before. Street heroin is also an opiate that appears to be increasing in abuse. The increase is partially due to the fact that heroin is a lot cheaper on the streets right now compared to pain killers, more potent and highly obtainable. Prescription narcotic pain medications are not only harder to come by but the cost on the streets has gone up so they're more expensive than heroin is right now.
