Get Free From Your Heroin Addiction

 

At Stepping Sober, we offer a variety of programs that help drug abusers suffering from a heroin addiction or experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Addiction is a deadly disease that affects millions around the world and we can help users get free from the grip of their drugs.

 

Heroin Addiction and Symptoms

 

Heroin is an opiate that gives users a sense of euphoria in the beginning stages followed by crippling withdrawal that creates a craving for more. This makes the drug very addictive and users often fall victim within 1-2 uses. Heroin users show the following symptoms:

 

  • Disorientation
  • Dry Mouth
  • Sudden Change in behaviors and actions
  • Hyper-alertness followed by drowsiness
  • Small pupils
  • Possession of paraphernalia
  • Residue on clothes, bags
  • Deceptive or volatile behavior
  • Decreasing personal hygiene and health care
  • Withdrawal from loved ones
  • Indicative comments
  • Frequently wearing long sleeves and long pants in warm weather

 

Since heroin is an addictive drug, users tend to form a tolerance and make heroin usage a habit. As usage continues to grow physical and mental symptoms become more and more apparent. Rapid weight loss, track/needle marks, cuts, bruises, emaciated appearance and constant infections are signs to look out for. Other indicators include financial breakdown as users spend more and more on the drug, lack or disruption of existing relationships (common as the drug takes over emotional behavior) and loss of profession. At detox center, we treat addicts in all stages and guide them through addiction, withdraw and towards sobriety.
