Why is heroin so addictive?
The Recovery Village reports that, while most people are not likely to become addicted to heroine after one use, the drug is so powerful that the brain and nervous system can quickly adjust to the changes it cause, and a compulsive cycle can begin quickly after a few uses.
Heroin is so addictive because it causes the brain and nervous system to release dopamine, which generates feelings of euphoria.
