Understanding Heroin Abuse and Opioid Use Disorders (OUD)

Heroin is a highly addictive and illegal opioid drug that produces pleasurable and euphoric sensations upon consumption. It is one of the most addictive substances that is available on the market, and can be injected, smoked or snorted.

As heroin is abused, the brain gradually becomes tolerant of the drug, which leads to many users eventually becoming reliant on and addicted to heroin and the euphoric effects it produces.

Like other substance addictions, heroin addictions are physical and psychological disorders that require intensive treatment to overcome.

Signs and Symptoms of Heroin Addiction

When a heroin addiction arises, several physical, psychological, and behavioural signs and symptoms can all be expected.

Physical Symptoms

Physical symptoms often arise as and when heroin is consumed. While many of the physical symptoms will alleviate naturally within as little as three hours, some of the symptoms associated with heroin addiction are long-lasting.

The physical symptoms associated with heroin addiction include:

  • Exhaustion
  • Weight loss
  • Constipation
  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Bruised skin
  • Pneumonia
  • Ongoing flu-like symptoms
  • Hepatitis C

Organ failure, increased heart rate, stroke, heart attacks and high blood pressure can also be caused from long term heroin addiction. As these symptoms can be fatal, they require immediate medical assistance.

Psychological Symptoms

Though heroin is frequently abused to reduce the impact that mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety have on an individual’s life, consuming heroin can also lead to mental health issues forming due to changes in the brain.

In addition to making pre-existing mental health disorders considerably worse, heroin addictions come hand-in-hand with the following psychological symptoms:

  • Disorientation
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Intense cravings

Suicidal thoughts are also among the psychological symptoms of heroin addiction.

Behavioural Symptoms

As heroin begins to impact an individual’s psychological health, the way they think, act, and behave will also start to change and give way to several behavioural symptoms, including:

  • Isolation
  • Lack of interest in everyday life
  • Intense cravings
  • Broken relationships
  • Participating in anti-social behaviour
  • Financial difficulty

Our Heroin Rehab Programmes

Support GroupsThose who battle with substance abuse should explore suitable treatment options as quickly as possible. We understand that attempting to go through the recovery process alone can be extremely difficult, and most times, it proves to be unsuccessful.

At Addiction Advocates, our hands-on experience and extensive knowledge means that we can offer a helping hand, no matter how complicated or severe your heroin addiction is.

When speaking of drug rehab programmes, self-help support groups, in-patient treatments, and outpatient treatments are the primary ways of getting help to treat your heroin addiction. You might require one of these treatment options when all efforts to stop on your own have proven to be unsuccessful.

At Addiction Advocates, our heroin detox programmes provide the required facilities to get each patient to a better state of health, both physically and mentally.

We find treatment options that help first-time callers and patients who have relapsed due to personal reasons. Before admission, we consider your details, the severity of your heroin addiction, and other factors like location, before we recommend a suitable treatment facility for you to receive treatment.

Our rehab centres provide medication management, mental health education, and transitional services that include after-care services. And once part of our programme, our team remains committed to taking up every addiction case and treating each of them.

What’s the Best Heroin Treatment Option for Me?

Addiction is a severe disorder that can only be treated with the help of experienced medical professionals. With the number of addiction and overdoses on the rise, it is more important than ever to seek help. The sooner you choose to attend a residential treatment facility, the better your chances of recovery and long term sobriety.

Although outpatient services can be a great form of recovery treatment, with substance addiction cases rising by the minute, waiting lists are often long and it can be difficult to get treatment quickly. Outpatient treatment is also not as intensive as inpatient and therefore has more cases of relapse as a result.

For extensive support and personalised care, your best option is private residential rehabs. Residential facilities offer you 24/7 access to medical professionals round the clock. Their experience provides you with a healthy and gradual healing process which gives you the best chance at recovery. Residential rehabs go above and beyond to provide homely environments that doesn’t reflect clinical or hospital environments, making your experience as comfortable as possible.

Rehab programmes start with detoxification, where heroin withdrawal symptoms will be experienced; this usually lasts for around 7-10 days since the last heroin intake.

Residents can be offered prescribed drugs to help manage the withdrawal symptoms during the detox process. Once this process is completed, you can then be admitted for structured counselling and therapy sessions.

The residential rehabs we recommend provide a warm and positive environment with non-judgmental therapists, medical professionals and recovery experts. This ensures that the healing environment is as natural, positive, and comfortable as possible.

Heroin Withdrawal Through Treatment

If you’re suffering from heroin addiction, you must consider the potential of withdrawal when you feel ready and capable to do so. To achieve heroin withdrawal, a range of addiction treatments will be recommended.

Withdrawal Symptoms Include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle spasms and aches
  • Agitation
  • Extreme heroin cravings
  • Depression
  • Vomiting
  • Tremors

From a heroin detox programme to remove all toxins from the body to psychological withdrawal through support groups, cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational therapy, there are fundamental methods required to diminish addictive characteristics.

To ensure that withdrawal from heroin can continue, where recovery is for the long-term, completing a comprehensive rehab programme should be prioritised. Here a personalised treatment plan will be available to motivate a drug-free future.
