What Is Heroin?

Heroin is a substance derived from the milky, white sap of opium poppies. Heroin has high levels of impurities and may contain additional substances, like other narcotics or rat poison (strychnine). Other additives found in heroin are lactose, baby laxatives, quinine, talc, and powdered milk. Serious vascular damage can occur when using heroin with these impurities. Overdoses are a high risk due to how potent each dose is. Pure heroin comes in a white powder form, but heroin off the street can vary in color from white to black to brown, depending on what other substances have been added to the street drug. Heroin is extremely addicting, harmful, and easily abused.

What Is Heroin Abuse Treatment?

Terminating heroin use has numerous withdrawal symptoms that are extremely hard to handle without professional help. Individuals tend to relapse just to escape the withdrawal symptoms.

  • Group counseling
  • 12-step meetings
  • Family counseling
  • Aftercare

Withdrawal from heroin use is painful, both mentally and physically. The highest recovery rates are at treatment facilities that focus on pupil dilation, blood pressure changes, sleep problems, irritability, heart rate changes, cravings, and restlessness. After completing the detox process and treatment, individuals need to commit to recovery for life by attending aftercare and 12-step programs. Free by the Sea offers treatment programs that include addiction treatment and relapse prevention.
