Summary:
People have grown opium poppies for thousands of years, but not because they're pretty. Powerful drugs called opiates come from these plants. Opiates are among the most potent painkillers known to medicine, but when they are misused the consequences can be illness, addiction and death. In Heroin & Other Opiates, students learn how highly effective pain relievers such as morphine and codeine work in the brain and body, while getting an in-depth look at the dangers of one of the most widely used illegal drugs in the world -- heroin. Tolerance, physical dependence and the horrors of addiction are discussed along with the harsh facts about withdrawal and the long-term effects of opiate abuse.

Part of the multivolume Drug Education for Teens Video Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
