In brief: Any amount

The obsession with use, and the compulsion to use can operate at any amount of the drug.

In brief: Possibly just 1 use

It is very easy to become physically and psychologically dependent on heroin.
The chemicals that are most likely to cause addiction are those that reach the brain quickly, greatly stimulate the "pleasure center", and then leave relatively quickly. I recommend that you visit http://www.abam.net/find-a-doctor/ to find an addictionologist who can help you.
