¡ï What is heroin?
Heroin, morphine chemical called diacetyl, diacetyl derivative of
In 1874, a United Kingdom hospital Â׶ØÊ¥ÂêÀö chemist from morphine and
acetic acid are two kinds of white crystalline powder. Test in dogs
was immediately collapse occurred, fear and sleepy and some terrible
symptoms. More than 10 years later, German chemist, announced that
such compounds with high analgesic effect than morphine, 4 to 8 fold,
bronchitis, bronchial asthma, tuberculosis and other frequently
wonders. After it was discovered that it is not only a good analgesic
effect and a stronger sense of psychedelic bliss, but also the
stimulating effect of both extraordinary. 1898, the German
pharmaceutical chemistry Bell companies began mass production, when
the purpose is to treat morphine addiction and as a strength to sell
narcotics, officially named as heroin (heroin) and for clinical use.
And people want to cure morphine addiction opium cause the same idea,
at first it again get rid of opium and heroin as the drug morphine
addiction, but it is more soluble than morphine, has faster
absorption, and the fat-soluble also large and easy to play through
the blood-brain barrier into the central role, while the addiction
itself more strongly, its personal and social consequences of the harm
caused, has far exceeded its medical value. Held in The Hague in the
Netherlands in 1912 International Conference on opium, to be
unanimously in favor of the control of opium, morphine and heroin
trafficking. , The U.S. Congress has expressly prohibited drugs such
as heroin production and sales. However, this is not the disappearance
of heroin, opium family in this most excellent because of its high
titer and pure, with less and smuggling of convenience, to become the
most used illegal drug in order to attract a growing number of drug
addicts, it is traces have been all over the world, in turn,
stimulates the production of substantial growth.
Today's opium, the main source of heroin in Southeast Asia, Myanmar,
Thailand, Laos adjacent to the Golden Triangle area, and Southwest
Asia Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan at the junction of the Golden
Crescent region; in addition to South Asia, India and other places. In
recent years, increasingly sophisticated technology, chemical
synthesis, the purity of heroin is also rising. On the black market in
drugs, usually heroin, opium, called 1, black or brown; the opium into
morphine product of this process is called 2, heroin, and ranking of
heroin, shaped like a brick, pale grayish brown; 3 Number of heroin
known as brown sugar, the other acetyl morphine content 3O a 50%
share, also known as heroin No. 3-saver or yellow arsenic, yellow,
etc.; 4 heroin is refined, purity about 90%, white Portugal; now have
what is known as white powder heroin, 5, and its purity reached 99.9%.
Of heroin on the black market can hardly hear the word, generally
referred to as "a few numbers" or "white powder."
Usually sell in the street is not very high purity heroin, the heroin
smuggled through the large and small layers of doped pumping the hands
of drug traffickers stripping can be reduced to below 40% purity, or
even 10% are common
¡ï How to preliminary identification of heroin?
Heroin is usually white or gray block, powder-like material, there are
relatively moist brown powder-like material, and some other substance
for incorporation of light yellow, gray and so on. Most heroin are
acetic acid odor.
¡ï "smoke three will be addicted to heroin," the statement
has been made under it?
Heroin has a comfortable and pharmacological characteristics of
euphoria. Heroin addiction has a strong initial euphoria, practice
shows that the majority of drug addicts for the first time there after
the whole body tired, very uncomfortable feeling, and desire for a
second drug, leading to addiction. Because people have to adapt to the
drug, resulting in physical and psychological dependence. So, to say
it will suck three heroin addiction is a large number of examples, and
those who believe that occasional smoking heroin does not matter what
the view is very wrong and very dangerous.
¡ï heroin
Heroin is diacetyl morphine, opium drug series products the most pure
essence, is the injection of drug abuse and one of the main drug.
1874, British chemist C ¡¤ Wright morphine acetic acid and other
substances, for the first time to extract a better analgesic effect of
semi-synthetic derivative of morphine or heroin, diacetyl. Heroin
because the white powder, slightly soluble in water, soluble in
organic solvents, heroin hydrochloride soluble in water, the solution
colorless and transparent.
Heroin into the body, is first hydrolyzed to a single acetyl morphine,
and then further hydrolyzed to morphine and work. Because
water-soluble heroin, morphine than the big fat-soluble, so it is
absorbed in the body faster and easy through the blood-brain barrier
into the central nervous system, produced a strong reaction, with a
stronger inhibitory effect than morphine, its analgesic effect of
morphine is also 4-8 times. Heroin was used as the initial drug
addicts kick the morphine, and later found it both stronger than
morphine, drug dependence, commonly used doses of two weeks or less
continuous use can be addictive, which have a serious drug dependence.
The current international order is divided into ten of the number of
drugs, mainly opium, heroin, marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines,
hallucinogenic agent ten categories, including heroin occupy the third
and fourth number, the drug and III IV drugs, and that the world is
widely known as the "Three heroin", "IV heroin."
Because of this habit it is called so that people mistakenly think
there is a, II heroin, morphine or morphine salts actually.
Three of heroin, also known as "Hong Kong Stone",
"brown sugar", "White Pearl" and so on, is the
process of morphine produced by the chemical diacetyl morphine, and
then add a large amount of diluent (such as strychnine, quinoline
enjoin , scopolamine, aspirin, caffeine, etc.) made of granular drug,
and sometimes also in powder form, color from light gray to dark gray.
Three heroin diacetylmorphine diacetylmorphine and the total content
of a single 25% -45% generally, caffeine content in the 30-60%
generally adulterated.
IV heroin morphine by acetylation in the reaction does not dilute
them, but purified, and then through the precipitation, to be dry.
Diacetylmorphine content of which is generally more than 80%, up to
98%, pure, or purity of IV heroin is a white, odorless, transparent
powder, and very delicate rub on the skin that will disappear.
However, if the manufacturer will not show yellow, pink, sandy brown,
rough or even a granular powder. On the current international only
qualitative identification of heroin Indefinite.
Available sniffing heroin, smoking, subcutaneous and intravenous
injection, of which the latter two methods are more common.
According to the determination of heroin morphine on the human body
toxicity is more than five times the second, after heroin, are
addictive in most cases, resulting in physical and psychological
dependence. Heroin withdrawal symptoms are as follows: anxiety,
irritability, irritability, tears, whole body pain, insomnia, from the
"goose bumps", a burning sensation, vomiting, throat
infarction, abdominal and other muscle cramps, dehydration and so on.
Also appeared nervous, mental excitement, generalized muscle
twitching, a lot of sweating or chills, male erectile also appear
spontaneously or ejaculation, or both.
The main symptoms of heroin poisoning: miosis, such as pinholes, skin
cold and black, breathing slow, deep coma, paralysis of respiratory
center, failure fatal. Heroin addicts prone to bacterial skin
infections, such as abscesses, sepsis tetanus, hepatitis, AIDS, and
even death due to acute poisoning.
The main source of heroin, drug sources are located in Laos, Thailand,
Myanmar, the three countries bordering the "Golden Triangle"
¡ï China for the first time found that "heroin
China news agency, Guangzhou, August 15 - (WU Dao Hill Xumin Qian Ning
Xi source) Nanfang Hospital, First Military Medical University,
disclosed today, the experts in Guangdong Province by the five
patients with nasal disease follow-up survey of heroin, found that the
"heroin spongiform white matter encephalopathy. " This is
the first species found in the disease.
Currently, the five patients had one death and four others are
gradually recovered. Among them, the hospital four months, two
patients before treatment, recovery from treatment than did not have
significantly improved.
The five patients in a short span of five months of continuous
discovery. Experts believe that this that the disease in the Guangdong
region of China, especially the trend of bulk disease. And called,
"Sponge heroin leukoencephalopathy," should cause the
medical profession and society.
Nanfang Hospital, the official said, since March of this year, the
hospital has treated five neurology nasal disease in patients with
heroin, have unsteady gait, slurred speech and other symptoms of
cerebellar injured. LU Bing-xun Zhou Liang, director and attending
physician through careful examination, found that five patients with
other lesions in patients with heroin intoxication significantly
different. According to the pathological results and the
characteristics of CT, MRI performance, the last of the five patients
diagnosed as "heroin spongiform leukoencephalopathy."
According to LU Bing-xun introduced the mechanism of the disease in
the medical profession is still a mystery, but the patients had
history of snorting heroin, and other analysis, the disease may be
related to heroin ingredients impure, since the brain contains many
impurities are heroin evidence of damage of toxic substances.
According to reports, "of heroin spongiform
leukoencephalopathy" in 1982 first discovered in the Netherlands.
The past decade, the world is not more than ten cases that is very
¡ï psychological characteristics of heroin addicts
Heroin is not a single act, but integrated with a variety of reasons
caused the results of the psychological characteristics of heroin
addicts around the following four aspects.
One. Personality:
1. Instant gratification and have not yet learned to delay the
2. Emotions are impulsive, they act without considering the
3. Withstand failures and setbacks, who Poguanposhuai attitude towards
4. A lack of self-confidence and decision-making capacity;
5. Inferiority strong and subtle, shy, lonely heart will not make
close friends;
6. Cold hatred, lack of love;
7. No sense of responsibility.
II. Behavior:
1. Medication overwhelming: the dependence of life is the decisive
impact of compulsive drug use. Overriding medication, medication than
eating, sleeping, sex and other basic needs is also important.
Medication can sacrifice everything for what the future of work,
personal health, self-esteem, self-love, social morality and law can
be disregarded all.
2. Life uncharacteristically: heroin abuse or dependence in early life
can maintain the status quo, even confidential. Medication after a
period of time, lifestyle has changed completely, do not sleep at
night, during the day can not afford them only a meal a day, or even
fruit, drinks as the day's diet.
3. Lie talks about: heroin addicts continue to use heroin in order to
avoid or mitigate the pressure inside and outside, lying is
inevitable. As lying to deceive what they want. In order to get drug
money, they must be lying, cheating his family, friends, relatives.
Over time, there is no habit of telling the truth out. Even if only
one telling the truth, that is like drugs.
4. Drug half-truths: drug use and drug nearly every day they face the
choice of drug and seek immediate drug is not containment, treatment
sucked to have to do. Both contain the ingredients really, but it is
difficult to find out true or otherwise, on the one hand promises to
repentant drug, on the other hand every effort to find heroin to drug
5. Gaoqian unscrupulous: Heroin addiction, the purchase of drugs will
soon become a problem. Expensive because of drugs, the normal income
is reduced, the amount of heroin will gradually increase, Gao Qian
life of heroin addicts has become another center.
Three emotional characteristics:
Comfort and euphoria are typical of many opioid pharmacological
characteristics, is to produce abuse and dependence of the root of all
evil. After disabling when the patient may appear anxious heroin
irritability and other mood disorders and easy to get angry.
Thinking four characteristics:
A mental disorder drug. Another manifestation of thought disorder as
paranoia. Delusion is a kind of two patients with no objective basis
in fact but firmly believe in and can not be persuaded to a
pathological belief, the content of delusions and more absurd,
bizarre, horror, often appear self-injury, suicide, assault and other
dangerous behaviors more than women depression, low self-esteem.
Psychology is easy to see from the above characteristics, once
addicted to drugs, in addition to physical detoxification, but also
must be systematic and long-term psychological rehabilitation for
heroin addicts from the little things, establish the correct values of
life, the Church certain survival skills improve the ability of social
adaptation. Dai Tuopu drug rehabilitation village based on years of
accumulated experience, the introduction of foreign advanced TC model
to help heroin addicts out of many drugs, teach them how to conduct
long-term, psychological rehabilitation in the treatment achieved good
¡ï reasons for relapse in heroin addicts and Countermeasures
(-) The reasons for relapse analysis:
1. Drug addiction, physical and psychological reasons. One drug, the
drug substance will rapidly spread to human brain, and with people
with a body of material, the body of the drug after repeated tolerance
improved. Gradually weakened the role of drugs, drug users can only
larger doses to suppress the body continuously respond to meet the
physical demands, and thus unable to extricate themselves bogged down,
people once drug addiction, psychological dependence and physical
dependence and mutually reinforcing, due to psychological increased
reliance physiological dependence, physical dependence and withdrawal
symptoms produced by repeated exacerbations psychological dependence.
2. Not easy to kick the habit because, relapse rate of causes. Drug
addiction treatment staff from the process analysis, psychological
addiction than the physical addiction hard to quit. Drug addicts
during detoxification in the hospital can not touch drugs, so the
concept of psychological dilute the drug, the determination of drug
repent, soon after discharge may be shut oneself up and ponder over
one's mistakes or under the supervision of the family try not to get
involved in the original circle of drug abuse. However, with the
society and the family gradually weakened its binding, and ultimately
unable to go empty or lonely not bear the pressure of the environment,
will be involuntarily pursue the original drug to become friends in
the degree of drug prisoners, while the lack of strong social and
family monitoring mechanism of helpers, led to high relapse rate,
another important reason. Different degrees from more than 300 cases
of relapse staff 90% of unmarried or divorced people, most of them do
not have a full house and the majority of social idlers, no fixed
occupation. Drugs after their recalcitrant family, the children
repeated drug ring fails, despair holding rejected the mentality of
indifference, or even allowed to launch their own homes destroyed,
families are not further enhanced with the uncooperative attitude of
drug abuse staff ÆƹÞ×ÓÆÆˤ psychological, time and space so that the
discharged drug addicts to relapse to leave more room for instability.
In addition, ethics, values, dislocation, a small number of drug
addicts to drug for fashion, in terms of ideology can not stay away
from drugs, dependence on drugs has been "lingering" This
mind distorted. There are a lot of people lose confidence in ourselves
but in the form of its drug treatment only once in the environment
will be immediately lifted drug relapse.
(B) of the responses:
Drug is a drug, and the social environment are three major
interrelated factors, the result of interaction, which is the spread
of drugs is dependent on the objective material basis for drug
addicts, the social environment plays an important role is the
external conditions, people's quality level is can withstand the
temptation of drugs determinants. Therefore, to protect the
rehabilitation work is essentially a healthy growth of youth work is
an educational one, to save the people and transform people's work.
From the educational content of view, there are five aspects:
(1) recognize that drug control is opposed to decadent lifestyle of an
important initiative, critical drug use is "fashionable",
"can heal", "seek to enjoy their own money" and
other misconceptions.
(2) for a correct world outlook, outlook on life and values education.
(3) education for social morality.
(4) recognize the phenomenon of drug abuse is a social evil.
(5) The social atmosphere is polluted, endangering public security,
induced the bane of all crime.
Of heroin addicts during detoxification and rehabilitation stages of
psychological therapy should be given to their public health aspects
of drug treatment theory, treatment modalities, so that in their
treatment process to eliminate psychological barriers, and actively
cooperate with the treatment, the specific implementation of the
1) allow patients to understand the human body and anatomy knowledge
2) to patients to explain the physiology, let know after the drug-drug
operation in the human body or metabolism.
3) talk to drug addicts and drug abuse easily lead to the syndrome of
individual reasons, allowed to understand drugs and drug abuse and
self-induced cause of death in the severity of chronic suicide.
4) to the patients to talk about "family, friendship, love,"
allowed to feel "love" in the human internal changes.
5) make clear to the patients to their treatment methods and
procedures, allowed understanding of their treatment, combined with
physiological functions, allowed to understand every step of
6) to patients to explain the need for strict management, convinced
that the treatment effect, teach them for anti-relapse after
detoxification methods how to conduct and consolidate drug efficacy.
7) experienced by the patients to the podium to complaints of drug
hazards. The indictment of drugs on individuals, families, social
hazards; complaint quit his tired tired after exposure to smoke can
not get rid of the reason; complaints pull themselves into the water,
induced drug instigator and drug dealers. Through the "three
complaints" activities, so that drug addicts conscience recovery,
anti-drug awareness enhanced.
8) about how to reshape the addicts life, and establish the dignity
and actively participate in social activities out to be a "magic
circle" of the winner. Tell them what hazardous to health, what
health benefits, and guide them how to do that, although the reason
people do not understand, how the do not listen to advice.
Subtle influence on the drug addicts using a "new
psychotherapy" is not a general way of preaching, but
"something of value torn to see" this approach in drug
therapy and will certainly play a big role in and effect.
