This poster focuses on the effects of heroin addiction on the neurobiology of the brain and its implications for nursing care. Heroin use causes long term changes in the function of multiple areas of the brain. It is the hope of the author that understanding the pathophysiology of heroin addiction will help caregivers overcome innate bias and to become better caregivers for our patients.
