This section of the site deals with the effects of heroin and other opioids. Other aspects of pharmacology can be found in the chemistry section of Heroin Helper.
- Why Users Inject Heroin
- Heroin is associated with injection more than any other street drug. Although it is rarely discussed, there is a reason for this. It makes more sense to inject heroin than it does most other drugs. This article explains the why.
- Strength of Opioids
- The relative strength of the opioids--for those times when you need to know just how many milligrams of morphine equal a gram of methadone.
- Lycaeum Opioid Strengths
- This is a compliment to our own table. It contains some opioids that ours does not, along with some information that we are missing (e.g. legal schedule). Eventually, we will integrate this information into ours, but for now, both tables are of value. Note, however, that this table does have some incorrect information (not much, however).
