Heroin at McDonalds: Drive-Thru Drug Dealer
Do you use heroin? Do you find yourself having a hard time controlling your drug addiction? Where do you buy your drugs? Do you ever think you might have a heroin addiction? Heroin is one of the most dangerous drugs available, with users quickly developing a tolerance and needing more and more of the drug in order to feel the same effect. Scientific studies have shown that humans are particularly susceptible to becoming addicted to heroin, compared to other drugs. And drug dealers are coming up with new and innovative strategies to deal heroin to their customers. The latest scheme involves a McDonalds drive-thru.
Drug Dealers Adopting New Strategies
Apparently, all you'd have to do to order heroin at this McDonalds in Pittsburgh would be to say "I'd like to order a toy." A 26-year-old server was dealing heroin in the Happy Meal boxes. She was caught by an undercover investigation, leading to the arrest of her and another person. They're facing drug dealer charges. This story comes at a time when heroin addiction is growing more and more in this country. Click here to learn more about the statistics behind heroin usage. And not only is heroin itself dangerous in terms of its addictiveness, but the street forms of the drug are often adulterated with poisons in order to increase drug-dealers' profits. Diluted or "cut" heroin can cause many more health problems than the pure drug. However, the most dangerous part of using heroin is often the needle: people who inject heroin have a great risk of contracting HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, bacterial or fungal infections, or other infectious diseases. Addicts are also at a very great risk for overdosing on heroin, due to the remarkably quick increase in heroin tolerance.

Heroin Addiction: How Does it Impact You?
But heroin addiction isn't the end of the line. Drug rehab and drug treatment centers can help you get clean. The important thing to remember about choosing a treatment plan is that people usually can't get clean on their own. They need the support of caring counselors, doctors, and other staff. And they need help so they don't fall back into using. Many drugs have a significant barrier to quitting: withdrawal symptoms. From discomfort to cravings, to actual health problems, it's best to be monitored while detoxifying so withdrawal can be managed.
