Common Signs of Heroin Addiction
How does a person know if they are actually addicted to this drug? Well, the first thing to note is that heroin is highly addictive. The truth is that most people who use it do become addicted. Due to the initial rush of euphoria, it convinces the brain that it is the best or even the only way to get pleasure. There are also some common signs of heroin addiction such as:
- Continuing to use heroin so you don’t have to experience withdrawal symptoms
- Life revolves around getting and using this drug
- Not being able to stop using the drug no matter what you try to do
- Not having interest in your family, friends or other activities due to heroin use
- Avoiding certain people who you know will place judgment on you because you use this drug
- Continuing to use the drug despite how it negatively affects your life
Are you experiencing any of these signs? If so, our team wants you to reach out to us. We believe that with the support of our team, you can overcome this addiction.
Common Signs of Heroin Use
Maybe, you’re not the one that is using heroin, but you think someone you know is using it. How do you know if someone in your life is using heroin? There are some common signs of heroin use including:
- Constantly dry mouth
- Skin always has a pink/reddish tone to it
- Cloudy, confused thinking
- Not making logical decisions
- Impaired thinking and judgment
- Constantly feeling on edge
- Nodding in and out when coming off the high (if they let themselves get that far)
