Effects of Heroin Use on the Body

Heroin is an opioid that triggers specific naturally occurring neurotransmitters like dopamine to activate mu-opioid receptors (MORs) in the reward center of the brain. These MORs regulate pain, hormone release, and feelings of well-being.

The consequences of activating opioid receptors with heroin (versus naturally occurring chemicals within our bodies) depend on a variety of factors. The amount of heroin used, its bind location in your brain and body, how strongly it binds, how long, how quickly it gets there, and what happens afterward all affect your ability to stop using heroin.

Heroin Usage in the U.S.

  • Among people aged 12 or older in 2020, 0.3% (or about 902,000 people) reported using heroin within the year.
  • In 2020, approximately 13,165 people died from an overdose.

Heroin Use Signs and Symptoms

Heroin addiction is nondiscriminatory. The signs and symptoms vary among users based upon genetic makeup, amount of drug used, frequency of use, and level of dependency on the drug. We understand this and will help personalize your heroin detox.

Behavioral symptoms include

  • Lying about drug use
  • Decreased personal hygiene
  • Inability to fulfill responsibilities
  • Apathy and lack of motivation
  • Continuing to use heroin despite negative personal consequences
  • Unable to cut back or quit for any significant amount of time
  • Neglecting personal responsibilities
  • Avoiding previously joyful activities
  • Legal and financial troubles
  • Interpersonal issues
  • Stealing from others
  • Increased sleeping

Physical symptoms include

  • Weight loss
  • Slurred speech
  • Shortness of breath
  • Frequent respiratory infections
  • Dry mouth
  • “Nodding off” during conversations
  • Constricted pupils
  • Extreme itching

Cognitive symptoms include

  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Delusions

Psychosocial symptoms include

  • Depression
  • Euphoria
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Irritability

Like many others, you may spend a great deal of time obtaining, using, and recovering from heroin, and as you develop physical tolerance, more heroin is required for the same effects to be produced. It is easy for anyone to become stuck in the cycle of obsession and compulsion. We understand intense psychological drug cravings.

Effects of Heroin Withdrawal

When heroin use is stopped suddenly, you may experience symptoms such as

  • Mild or moderate anxiety
  • Sleep-related disturbances
  • Flu-like respiratory and gastrointestinal issues
  • Excessive yawning
  • Uncontrollable shaking/chills

As your withdrawal progresses, your symptoms may include

  • More severe anxiety
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Panic attacks
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
  • Intense psychological drug cravings
  • Body tremors
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Extreme agitation and irritability
  • Severe abdominal cramping
  • General aches and pains

Without professional care, you are at great risk for relapse, since symptoms associated with heroin detox are highly uncomfortable. However, when effectively treated in a facility like Restored Path Detox, your symptoms can be carefully managed, and a comfortable withdrawal can be achieved.

Is Heroin Detox Necessary?

Medically managed detox plays a crucial role in helping individuals just like you take steps toward hope, health, and healing. Restored Path Detox helps to reduce your risk of relapse while ensuring you’re comfortable and safe in our private heroin detoxification center.

Our professionals are caring and compassionate. We will manage your heroin withdrawal symptoms while monitoring your vitals, performing assessments, and providing general medical care.

How Long Does It Take to Withdrawal From Heroin?

The heroin withdrawal timeline varies from person to person and depends on their unique tolerance and physical dependence of the drug.

However, the basic withdrawal timeline follows the same path for most:

  • Initial symptoms appear within the first 24 hours and may vary from mild to severe.
  • Withdrawal symptoms intensify within 24-36 hours and is the most dangerous phase of the heroin detox process.
  • Symptoms begin to taper as heroin leaves the body between days 4-6. Those with long-term heroin misuse may still struggle during this time.
  • Most brain and biological functions are restored within 7 days of heroin withdrawal and people begin to address their mental and physical health problems.
