The National Clearinghouse for Drug Abuse Information recognized the need for clarifying some of the more complex issues in drug abuse by gathering the significant research findings on each subject and developing fact sheets on the problem. This brief fact sheet presents information about treatment modalities, the pharmacology and chemistry of heroin, and opinions and practices of recognized authorities in the field. The report also attempts to provide background into the complexities of heroin as a drug and as part of a historical, socioeconomic, legal and biomedical problem. Three pages of the brief are devoted to a comprehensive list of pertinent drug abuse legislation beginning in 1906. (Author/PC)
