Long-Term Effects of Heroin Use

As films like “Requiem for a Dream” have illustrated, substances like heroin have the potential to cause immense damage that can follow a person for the rest of their lives. Users will usually elect to inject, smoke, or snort the substance in order to experience the intense euphoria that heroin can infamously result in.

Consequences of prolonged heroin use include:

  • – Severe insomnia
  • – Risk of infection to the heart
  • – Chronic constipation
  • – Respiratory complications
  • – Collapsed veins near the injection site

All it takes to get addicted is one try, and this single bad decision can lead to a lifetime of consequences. Despite its status as an illicit substance, this doesn’t always prevent users from putting their well-being and livelihoods on the line to get their fix.

Signs of Heroin Abuse

While some may be better at hiding it than others, there are certain indicators that can signal the use of heroin in a person’s life.

These signals include:

  • – Neglecting responsibilities
  • – Lack of personal hygiene
  • – Nodding off
  • – Unstable moods
  • – Weight loss
  • – Inability to focus or make decisions
  • – Inexplicable personality changes
  • – Visible paranoia

It is also worth keeping an eye out for drug paraphernalia, which can include burnt or damaged spoons, glass pipes, and syringes. If you believe that someone you care about is exhibiting any of the symptoms listed above, do not hesitate to get them help. Legacy Healing offers one of the best heroin detox centers in Ohio, where patients are able to move through the withdrawal process while in a safe and comfortable environment. Our team of clinical professionals will address any negative symptoms that arise and ensure the patient is prepared in body and mind for the addiction treatments to follow.
