Heroin Addiction Treatment
It’s no secret that heroin addiction continues to grow every year in America. However, what has changed about heroin use itself is that people are commonly using heroin in addition to prescription opioids and fentanyl, one of the most dangerous synthetic opioids ever synthesized. Even in the face of growing common knowledge that much of the heroin on the street may be laced with fentanyl, those who are addicted to heroin or other opioids find it difficult or next to impossible to stop on their own and the reasons why are understandable from a pharmacological standpoint.
According to the Sandor Hosztafi, Ph.D., in an article published in the National Library of Medicine,
“Withdrawal symptoms may occur within a few hours after the last administration of heroin. Symptoms of the withdrawal include restlessness, insomnia, drug craving, diarrhea, muscle and bone pain, cold flashes with goose bumps, and leg movements. Major withdrawal symptoms peak between 48 and 72 hours after the last dose of heroin and subside after about a week. At this time, weakness and depression are pronounced and nausea and vomiting are common. Nevertheless, some chronic addicts have shown persistent withdrawal signs for many months or even years. Heroin addiction is considered as a behavioural state of compulsive drug use and a high tendency to relapse after periods of abstinence.”
