Differences between OxyContin Addiction and Heroin Addiction

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In an addict’s view, the differences between Heroin addiction and OxyContin addiction are virtually non-existent, reports JF Dubreuil of Narconon Trois-Rivieres. Both heroin and OxyContin are semi-synthetic opioid drugs derived from the opium poppy. OxyContin is basically oxycodone – derived from the alkaloid thebaine of the opium poppy, and heroin is diacetylmorphine, derived from morphine.
