Heroin is considered one of the most addictive drugs in the world. Over the past couple of decades, many people have developed a heroin addiction after taking painkillers for pain. After exhausting their prescriptions, they often turn to heroin.
Heroin comes from poppy plant seeds that are processed into morphine. It can take the form of white powder, brown powder, or black tar. The drug can be injected, smoked, or snorted, giving users a feeling of euphoria, warm feeling to the skin, and relaxation. Unfortunately, dependency can result in physical and psychological withdrawals that leaves addicts feeling miserable without the drug.
Signs of Heroin Addiction
If you suspect someone you know may be addicted to heroin, pay close attention to their home, their physical characteristics, and their lifestyle habits to identify certain telltale signs. Identifying the truth and depth of the problem is the first step towards supporting your loved one's long-term sobriety.
Signs of heroin addiction include:
- Slurred speech
- Needle marks
- Dilated or constricted pupils
- Hostile or erratic behavior
- Poor job or academic performance
- Isolation from friends and loved ones
- Stealing money for drugs
- Significant weight loss
- Shortness of breath
- Constant itching
Symptoms of Heroin Withdrawal
Users typically begin experiencing withdrawal symptoms between 6 and 12 hours after their last dose. Heroin withdrawal symptoms are often similar to those of prescription opioids, though because heroin leaves the user's system more quickly than painkillers, withdrawal symptoms have an earlier onset.
The following are symptoms of heroin withdrawal:
- Intense cravings
- Cold sweats
- Bone and muscle pain
- Severe cramping
The duration of heroin withdrawal will vary depending on the length of time the user abused heroin, the size of doses they took each time, how often they used, the method of which they used (injecting, smoking, etc.), and whether or not they suffer from additional physical or mental health issues.
Long-Term Effects of Heroin Use
Here are the long-term effects of heroin addiction:
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
