Heroin, otherwise known as diamorphine or smack, is fashioned from morphine and considered one of the most addictive and widely used opiates in existence. It is also among the most dangerous, affecting millions of people across the globe.
Opiate is a pharmaceutical designation for drugs derived from opium. Also referred to as opioids, the term applies to both synthetic and natural substances which attach to the opioid receptors in the human brain. They are alkaloid compounds, which appear naturally in the opium poppy plant. Opiates are often used to treat chronic or acute pain and if you take opiates for medicinal purposes, you can receive the strongest legal medication with a prescription from a GP. However, they are increasingly taken illegally for their sedative characteristics and utilised in the production of recreationalâ€¨ drugs.
