- Prescription Pain Pills = Heroin, both are Opioids and highly addictive and dangerous
- Heroin and prescription pills are rarely the starting point – First is marijuana, alcohol and other drugs
- When you use opioids and heroin, you lose your ability to choose
- You can become addicted and you can overdose with just 1 use, with the 2nd, the 3rd , etc. You cannot control this, nor can you predict it.
