Like heroin, morphine produces an intense but short-lived high that leaves its users wanting to repeat its effects, but they will require increasing amounts of the drug to do so. Tolerance and dependence develop quickly. Morphine also produces a high very similar to heroin, producing effects which include feelings of euphoria, drowsiness and sedation and warmth, that are incredibly desirable.
While not as potent as heroin or other narcotics, morphine dependency and addiction can have equally devastating effects if use continues long-term. Being a narcotic, morphine is also highly addictive, and most if not all users find it impossible to curb their use and break from their morphine habit without professional medical supervision. The consequences of an unsupervised and failed relapse can frequently be fatal, often resulting in overdose, coma and death.
Narcotic overdoses kill more than 10,000 users annually according to studies performed as recently as 2014. This trend towards abuse and its consequences indicate the compelling need for a supervised detox, individualized therapy and comprehensive rehab solutions when treating morphine use.
