Signs of Heroin Addiction

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

  • Mood swings/agitation/hostility/irritability

  • Neglecting school, work, or home responsibilities

  • Scabs/bruises on the skin

  • Signs of a high, including constricted pupils or drowsiness

  • Financial difficulties

How Heroin Addiction Impacts Your Health

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.

Short-Term Effects

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:

  • Constricted pupils

  • Drowsiness

  • Dry mouth

  • Euphoria and clouded thinking

  • Loss of coordination/mobility

  • Severe itching and skin flushing

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Reduced sensitivity to pain

  • Respiratory depression

  • Coma or fatal overdose


Long-Term Effects

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

  • Insomnia

  • Mental health issues

  • Nasal tissue damage (when snorted)
