Heroin is arguably the most addicting and damaging drug that exists today. With just one use, a person who uses heroin can quickly find themselves dangerously dependent on the drug. Although most people who are addicted to heroin understand the risks of continued use, it is very difficult to stop use without the help of a trained professional.
Our luxurious heroin rehab facility in North Palm Beach offers effective treatment options in a beautiful, relaxing environment.
If you believe your loved one is struggling with heroin use, it is imperative to get them help right away. Heroin users often appear sluggish and unaware of what is going on around them.
Heroin use may also be exhibited by more obvious signs like the presence of paraphernalia, such as needles, baggies, and other items.
The appearance of “track marks” are another major indicator of heroin use. When a person uses heroin intravenously (e.g. “shooting” heroin), the use of needles can create marks and scars on the skin. Track marks will most often appear near veins, such as on the arms, but can be present on any part of the body.
Heroin is a deadly drug. The highly addictive characteristics of the drug lead to increased tolerance, and therefore a greater need for higher amounts of the drug. As a person uses more heroin over time, the damage to their body and mental wellness increases.
In the short term, heroin use can lead to issues such as nausea and vomiting, slowed breathing and heart rate, and itching.
Because heroin is so deadly, many users do not survive long enough to experience the long-term effects. However, in some cases, the long-term use of heroin can lead to severe damage of the brain and other organs.
The long-term effects of heroin use include permanent changes to the structure and functionality of the brain. Beyond the addiction and dependence that the drug causes, use can also contribute to issues such as a weakened immune system, respiratory issues, and full or partial paralysis.
Stopping heroin use is extremely difficult. People who attempt to stop their use of the drug almost always experience severe withdrawal symptoms, which may include nausea and vomiting, fever, cramps, cold sweats, chills, and insomnia.
