I was prescribed hydrocodone but i'm afraid of getting addicted. Is hydrocodone as addictive/strong as heroin?

Heroin is the most addictive opiate.
Heroin was used for pain management, but it's addictive property led scientists to make hydrocodone. It is unlikely for a patient to be an addict with acute treatment.
