What is Heroin?
Heroin is an extremely addictive opioid drug, Heroin is considered a depressant. When someone uses heroin it activates the opioid receptors in the brain. This can result in an euphoric feeling and a surge of dopamine.
How Heroin Addiction Affects You
Heroin triggers temporary feelings of pleasure or euphoria. With long-term use, it can also lead to depression, insomnia, and heart infections. Like other opioids, heroin can lead to a dangerous or fatal overdose, as well. Without immediate medical attention, an overdose can lead to coma and loss of life.
Fatal overdoses are especially common with heroin, as the drug is completely unregulated, so you may accidentally overdose with one “hit.” Because heroin is illegal, the people around you may also be hesitant to call for help and risk getting in trouble.
Signs of Heroin Addiction
- Flushed cheeks
- Dry mouth
- Memory loss

- Intensive outpatient programs (IOP): IOP helps you move through clinical treatment with fewer restrictions and apply the lessons you learn in the real world as you recover.
