Opioid abuse of any kind can be dangerous. The opioid epidemic has seen a rising number of overdose deaths across the United States. Heroin, in particular, has resulted in the death of 15,000 people in 2017 alone.1 In order to keep this number from growing, to prevent this from happening to your loved one, you need to be able to not only recognize the signs of heroin addiction but also get your loved one treatment like at our luxury heroin addiction rehab in Palm Beach.
Heroin Basics & Signs of Heroin Addiction
Heroin is an opioid derived from the poppy plant. It is illegal in the United States but is highly addictive. It typically comes in the form of a white or off-white powder and can be injected, snorted, or smoked. Many heroin users began by misusing prescription painkillers, but instead of getting a standard or luxury drug detox to stop, they turned to heroin because it is more potent and often cheaper. Before they realize it, they become addicted to heroin and are usually unable to quit on their own.
If you suspect your loved one is abusing heroin, look for these signs of heroin addiction.
- Heroin paraphernalia like needles, burnt spoons, or tourniquets
- Constricted or pinpoint pupils
- Lethargy or drowsiness
- Memory problems
- Slurred speech
- Abnormal behavior
- Mood swings, irritability, or depression
- Decline in physical appearance
- Engaging in risky behavior
- Neglect of responsibilities
Because of the risk of overdose and the dangerous health effects of heroin, it is important that if your loved one is abusing this drug, you get them into luxury heroin treatment right away.
