Heroin Treatment Center in New Jersey

An Infamous Opioid

As the opioid epidemic continues to wage war on the lives of countless Americans, governments and healthcare professionals do what they can to keep up. One of the most well-known examples of opioids is heroin. This drug is particularly infamous for its high level of addictiveness and debilitating withdrawals. Forming such a dependency can drastically alter a person’s life, even after just one use. Legacy Healing’s heroin treatment center in New Jersey works to address these issues and aid our patients in rediscovering their potential.

Negative Effects of Heroin Addiction

Heroin is an extremely addictive drug that holds the potential to deteriorate a user’s mind as well as their body. It is typically injected, smoked, or snorted and is known to produce euphoric effects that lead to debilitating withdrawals. 

Negative effects include:

  • – Risk of infection
  • – Respiratory illness
  • – Heart issues like endocarditis (inflammation of heart valves)
  • – Coma 
  • – Death

Because of how addictive the feelings of euphoria can be, just one use can be enough to destroy a person’s entire life. While this drug is completely illegal, many are still susceptible to these occurrences if not fully aware of the risks involved.

Symptoms of Heroin Abuse

Addiction can lead a person to feel, look, and act differently than they would if they were sober. Being able to identify the warning signs could literally help determine the outcome of life or death. So, if you feel that someone you care about exhibits any of the signs below, do not hesitate to get them the help they need.

Signs of abuse include:

  • – Nodding off
  • – Slowed breathing
  • – Neglect of appearance and physical health
  • – Noticeable disorientation
  • – Heightened paranoia
  • – Impairment of memory
  • – Irritability and outbursts
  • – Social withdrawal

Someone with this addiction may also possess indicative drug paraphernalia, such as syringes, glass pipes, and burnt spoons. If you deduce that someone is, in fact, abusing this substance, consider contacting our Legacy Healing Detox Center. Heroin withdrawals can be deadly if not handled properly, and hiding a person’s stash can most often do more harm than good. At a professional level, these symptoms can be addressed and managed with the necessary medication, allowing the body a chance to readjust to the lack of heroin in the system.
