Signs of Heroin Addiction

The first step in getting help for heroin addiction is to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse. These can vary depending on how long someone has been using, how much they use, and other factors. However, there are some common signs to look out for, which include:

  • Withdrawal from friends and family

  • Loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed

  • Changes in eating habits

  • Mood swings and other changes in behavior or personality

  • Frequently falling asleep or “nodding out”

  • Drastic weight loss

  • Difficulty concentrating or staying focused on one task for an extended period of time

  • Nausea and vomiting

If you suspect that someone you know is abusing heroin, it is important to get them help as soon as possible. The sooner they enter into an addiction treatment program, the sooner they can begin to feel better.

 

Medical Detox for Heroin Addiction

Almost all people who are addicted to heroin cannot quit “cold turkey,” which is when someone addicted to this substance suddenly stops using. Medical detox is needed for anyone addicted to heroin. Withdrawal symptoms that occur when getting the drug out of your body can range from uncomfortable to extremely painful and life-threatening.

Detox should take place in a medically monitored detox setting where the physical pain is eased with evidence-based medications, and any emergency situations are attended to immediately. Significant heroin withdrawal symptoms typically peak between twenty-four and forty-eight hours after the last dose of heroin and subside after about a week. However, some people have shown persistent withdrawal signs for many months.

Heroin withdrawal symptoms may include:

Intense cravings

Restlessness

Muscle and bone pain

Insomnia

Diarrhea

Vomiting

Chills

Medical detox at Prairie Recovery Center’s heroin rehab center in North Dakota is designed for safety and comfort. Our compassionate staff will help you through every step of withdrawal and detox.

Heroin detox at Prairie Recovery Center is a process that includes:

  • You’ll work with a medical team that will attend to uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
  • We’ll monitor your physical and emotional health around the clock.
  • If you also use other drugs, we will provide detox from alcohol or other substances.
  • Our medical team will administer research-backed pharmacologic treatments to ease withdrawal symptoms.
  • You’ll stay in a safe and comfortable environment.
Once you complete the medical detox part of the treatment process, heroin and other drugs will be out of your system. Then, the healing work of residential heroin treatment can begin.
