Heroin Withdrawal Treatment Centers Little Rock Arkansas

Heroin addiction

Heroin can be injected, inhaled by snorting or sniffing, or smoked. All three routes of administration deliver the drug to the brain very rapidly, which contributes to its health risks and to its high risk for addiction, which is uncontrollable heroin-seeking and compulsive heroin-using despite harmful consequences.

Heroin addiction is a serious public health problem affecting many thousands of Arkansans. Heroin use is affecting people from every walk of life and every background. It is extremely addictive and once addicted, heroin users stop at almost nothing to obtain it, even if it means damaging relationships, risking their job, sharing needles and incarceration.

 

Side Effects of Heroin

The main side effects of heroin are urine retention, constipation, itchy skin, nausea, respiratory depression, and miosis. The side effects may continue for hours, but eventually wear off because heroin doesn’t last very long. In fact, most heroin addicts have to use four times per day to avoid getting dope-sick.
