The Rise of Heroin Addiction in the United States

Heroin is a dangerous drug because users never know its actual strength and the contents that make it upt. In some cases, these drugs are cut with poisons like strychnine. If the wrong substances get injected into the body, it can clog blood vessels or damage your brain, kidneys, and lungs. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, nearly 50,000 American adults died from opioid-related overdose cases in 2019. The misuse of opioids includes fentanyl, prescription pain relievers, and of course heroin. Heroin addiction is still currently a serious national public health crisis and causing problems related to social welfare and the economy.

Understanding Addiction

Common Signs and Symptoms of Heroin Addiction

Most addicts are often introduced into a euphoric state of intense relaxation while using heroin. This is caused by a temporary chemical change in the pleasure regions of their brain. Under this influence, they also are unable to properly perceive pain. Affected individuals who may have a history of abusing ‘dope’ may tend to conceal it or hide it from you. However, there are some warning signs that you can look out for:

  • Looking disorientated throughout the day
  • Unusual change of behavior that’s hard to comprehend
  • Bouncing off the extreme ends of alertness and sleepiness
  • Constant droopy appearance compared to how they usually look
  • Signs of constricted pupils when making eye contact
  • Dry mouth as if they are always dehydrated
  • Shortness of breath

Is Cold Turkey Detox a Safe Option for Heroin Addiction Treatment?

A heroin addict will find the physical aspect of withdrawal overwhelming, especially if they are considering quitting the drug cold turkey. It is recommended that recovering addicts choose medical detox programs, like those offered at Concise Recovery, because withdrawal symptoms often involve vomiting and diarrhea, which leads to dehydration that can be fatal. In addition to physical symptoms, patients going through withdrawal may also display signs of anxiety and depression. That’s why our heroin addiction treatment team at Concise Recovery is trained to protect clients against self-destructive acts, such as self-harm or suicide.

My family had done an intervention on me and gave me an ultimatum, to go get help or to be on the streets. I chose to get help not thinking anything would change and just to get my family off my back. And boy I couldn't have been more wrong, I have a life worth living today thanks to Concise Recovery. I will never go back!
