Heroin causes significant and pervasive damage to the brain and body. It is one of the most addictive and potent narcotics, and quickly alters the brain’s chemistry, rewiring it to constantly crave the drug. As long-term heroin abuse persists, users leave themselves vulnerable to a variety of permanent physical and emotional dangers, such as deterioration of brain matter, muscle and bone pain, extreme weight loss, insomnia, hallucinations, intestinal distress, heart attack, psychosis, extreme fluctuations in body temperature, fever and flu-like symptoms, seizures, coma and overdose.
These symptoms will increase and get more severe the longer heroin abuse is allowed to continue. It is critically important that users seek treatment immediately after experiencing any signs of withdrawal to prevent the onset of dependency.
Heroin addiction is among the most time-sensitive of substance use disorders.

For this reason, it is critical to recognize the common signs and symptoms of heroin addiction as soon as possible to prevent the onset of further abuse. While each user’s heroin addiction symptoms will vary, some of the more common include:
Loved ones of heroin addicts are uniquely empowered to identify and address these issues, so it’s important to be on the lookout if you suspect your friend or family member is using.
