If you or someone you know is struggling with heroin abuse and addiction, it’s time to get help. Heroin is an opioid analgesic made from the opium plant and synthesized. It can be smoked, snorted, or injected with street names like tar, brown, smack, or black tar. People using heroin for the first time report a dash of pleasure, joy, and well-being. As expected, the user may want more, so they continue to experience these feelings leading to tolerance, withdrawal, and the cycle of addiction that comes with chasing the highs and trying to avoid the lows. At The McShin Foundation, we understand how difficult it can be to quit heroin cold turkey—and we want to help you get through it! We’ve partnered with leading doctors around Henrico, Richmond, and Hanover who are experts in treating people suffering from opioid addiction; they will provide you with addiction treatments in Richmond, VA, as well as counseling therapy, whether group or individual.
