How much does a heroin habit cost per day?

The street cost of heroin is between $10 and $25 per dose.  Street heroin is often “cut” with other substances such as flour, talcum powder or chalk so the cost can vary depending on purity.

The average addict uses heroin between 4-6 times a day.

Therefore, the average heroin user spends:

$150 a day

$4500 a month

$54,000 a year

on their heroin habit.

Approximately 13,000 people died from heroin last year, or 35 deaths per day in the United States.
