As we all know, Heroin is one of the most dangerous drugs and is easily one of the most feared substance abuse problems. It has a reputation for giving the user one of the fastest and extreme highs, while quickly destroying lives and families. This deadly drug comes in different forms and can be ingested in various ways. Cut with substances like flour, starch, talcum powder, sugar, baking soda, and rat poison. These mixes of substances can change the color of the drug, which can help you identify the type of heroin. Below are the three most common types of heroin. If you or your loved one is suffering from an addiction to heroin, contact our Rehabs in NJ today.

 White Powder

White powder, also known as “China white” is significantly stronger than heroin alone. This type of heroin is mixed with fentanyl. Also, this type of heroin is generally injected or snorted by the user.

Black tar generally comes in a solid and liquid form. Usually, the solid form of Black Tar is injected or smoked. However, the liquid form of black tar is mixed with water and heated, then the user inhales it through the nose.
