Recognizing the signs of heroin addiction early can be crucial in seeking timely intervention and treatment. While the symptoms can vary in intensity and manifestation from one person to another, there are common indicators that suggest a possible addiction.
Physical Signs: One of the most immediate signs of heroin use is the short-lived, intense euphoria, often referred to as a “rush.” Following this rush, the individual might experience a state of drowsiness and relaxation for several hours. Physical symptoms can include constricted pupils, dry mouth, and a warm flushing of the skin. Over time, frequent heroin use can lead to weight loss, needle marks or scars from injections, and infections or abscesses at injection sites.
Behavioral Changes: Individuals addicted to heroin often exhibit significant behavioral changes. They may become secretive, isolating themselves from family and friends. There’s often a noticeable decline in performance at work or school, coupled with a lack of interest in previously enjoyed activities. The overwhelming need to procure and use heroin can lead to lying, stealing, or other deceptive behaviors.
Mental and Emotional Indicators: Heroin addiction can also manifest in various mental and emotional symptoms. Users might display increased anxiety, mood swings, or periods of hyperactivity followed by sudden lethargy. There’s often a noticeable lack of motivation and a persistent state of drowsiness or fog. Over time, the individual may also show signs of depression or hopelessness, especially if they recognize the grip the addiction has but feel powerless to stop it.
At Inner Voyage, we offer personalized treatment programs to help you overcome your heroin addiction. All of our treatment programs are built using a whole-person approach to addiction. We believe that the best way to achieve recovery is by treating your addiction and addressing any underlying trauma that may have led to it. Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Our PHP programs are designed for those that need the structure of an inpatient treatment without having to stay at a facility. This program allows you to receive support during the day and still return home every night. If you don’t have a safe place to stay near our facilities, then Inner Voyage will work with you to find a nearby sobriety house.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): IOP treatments work best for people that need treatment without detox services. Similar to our PHP treatment, IOP programs don’t require you to stay in a facility and are designed to help you return to your normal life while still receiving treatment.
Outpatient Counseling: Our counseling services are built to keep you committed to your recovery as you live your everyday life. Addiction doesn’t end when you exit a rehab center, so our counselors are here to help you when you face stressors or think about relapsing. We offer a variety of counseling services including:
