While there’s essentially no such thing as a non-addictive drug, heroin is particularly addictive and the consequences can be devastating and sometimes fatal.

A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, has published an important new blog that lists the signs and symptoms of heroin abuse.

“While there’s essentially no such thing as a non-addictive drug, heroin is particularly addictive and the consequences can be devastating and sometimes fatal,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “It’s my hope that this blog gives friends, family members and other loved ones some insight on what could be a case of heroin abuse or addiction, which could prompt them to try and help before a crisis emerges – not after.”

According to the A Forever Recovery blog post, signs and symptoms of heroin abuse can include both physical and behavioral symptoms, including:

  •     Shortness of breath
  •     Dry mouth
  •     Small pupils
  •     Unpredictable behavior
  •     Confusion
  •     Nodding off
  •     Compulsive lying
  •     Weight loss
  •     Visible needle marks
  •     Infected needle marks
  •     Constant, unexplained runny nose
  •     Unexplained cuts, bruises and scrapes
  •     Slurred or incoherent speech
  •     Sudden drop in school or work performance
  •     Loss of motivation
  •     Withdrawal from friends and family
  •     Hostile, blaming behavior toward friends and family
  •     Lack of hygiene
  •     Constant wearing of long sleeves or pants, even in hot weather (worn to hide needle marks)

“Obviously, it goes without saying that these signs and symptoms are by no means conclusive evidence that someone is abusing heroin,” added Per Wickstrom. “And so nobody should rush to a conclusion. However, sometimes where there’s smoke there’s fire, and anyone who is concerned about a friend or loved one should contact a local accredited and licensed rehabilitation facility to ask for advice on how they can be part of the solution.”

About A Forever Recovery

A Forever Recovery program is an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in. Not every treatment methodology works for every client. Some people are very receptive to 12-step principles, whereas others are more comfortable with faith-based treatment. Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
