Younger and younger South Africans are starting to use heroin. As this is the most habit-forming drug available, it is important for young heroin users to get professional help as soon as possible. How would you know if someone has a problem?

Take action:
Look out for the following suspicious signs/objects: bent and blackened teaspoons; blackened tinfoil; matchbox covers; hypodermic syringes and needles; lemons or packets of citric acid; needle marks; unidentified tablets, capsules or syrups; a tourniquet.

This week is Substance Abuse Awareness Week. Learn more about drug addiction.
