There Is Treatment Help For Heroin Addiction

Heroin is a highly psychologically and physically addictive illegal drug that can be injected, smoked, or sniffed/snorted. Heroin enters the brain rapidly, giving the user a rush or feeling of euphoria, followed by a twilight state of sleep and wakefulness. Repeated use causes users to require more heroin each time to achieve the same intensity as before. As higher doses of the drug are used over time, physical dependence and addiction to the drug develop.Physical symptoms of heroin use include : drowsiness, respiratory depression, constricted pupils, nausea, a warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth, and heavy extremities. Like other opiates, heroin use blocks the brain’s ability to perceive pain.

Unfortunately, heroin users often put themselves at a high risk of overdose or death because they do not know the actual strength of the drug or its true contents. The effects can include slow and shallow breathing, blue lips and fingernails, clammy skin, convulsions, coma, and death.

One year ago, my son took a huge step in the right direction as I dropped him off at Vertava Health of Tennessee, Spring 2 Life Campus. That decision will change his life and impact our family forever. We are eternally grateful to Vertava Health of Tennessee for helping turn our son around and get him started in a new life! We love our new family at ACTN
