A person addicted to heroin will experience distracting or consuming cravings for the drug and may up their dose progressively over time. Attempts to stop using heroin on their own may result in intense withdrawal symptoms.
If you’re concerned that a family member or loved one is addicted to heroin, look for these behavioral and psychological signs:
Anxiety or depression
Changes in eating and sleeping patterns, weight loss
Losing interest in previously enjoyed activities and hobbies
Neglecting school, work, or home responsibilities
Scabs/bruises on the skin
Signs of a high, including constricted pupils or drowsiness
Heroin targets the opioid receptors in your brain and spinal cord. Long-term use damages tissues everywhere, while short-term heroin use can precipitously restrict breathing and bodily functions, potentially causing loss of consciousness or coma.
Heroin is a highly dangerous substance. Even short-term or one-off use risks life-endangering effects, and any experimentation with the substance can cause an overdose. In 2020 alone, 13,165 lives ended because of a heroin overdose.
Some of the short-term effects of heroin substance abuse include:
Euphoria and clouded thinking
Loss of coordination/mobility
Severe itching and skin flushing
Nausea and vomiting
Reduced sensitivity to pain
Coma or fatal overdose
Long-term heroin use leads to addiction, collapsed veins, lung, liver, and kidney damage, and an increased risk of diseases like HIV and hepatitis. Heroin can damage the brain, causing memory loss and cognitive impairment, as well as depression and anxiety. Many regular users suffer from infertility and sexual problems.
Brain and nervous system damage
Heart, kidney, liver, or lung problems
Mental health issues
Nasal tissue damage (when snorted)
Sexual and menstrual cycle problems
Skin infections and collapsed veins (when injected)
Increased risk of contracting HIV and hepatitis
Social, educational, and financial issues
Tolerance, dependence, and addiction
