JAMA study finds increase in heroin use

A study published in JAMA examined the changes in heroin use disorder patterns from 2001-2002 to 2012-2013 and found that use grew significantly higher over time with the greatest increases shown among white individuals. In addition, researchers found that the nonmedical use of prescription opioids before heroin use only increased among white users.
