Heroin is without a doubt one of the most addictive drugs that our world has ever seen. Going by many names, heroin is a drug that is either snorted or injected, and creates a euphoric sensation that many other drugs cannot match up. Users have been known to become addicted from the very first time the drug is used, and many people have died from overdosing on it.

For those of you addicted to heroin and seeking to get clean: congratulations. You are taking a hard, long journey, but if you make it, the results are priceless and definitely well worth it.

This guide was designed to give you an idea what to expect when detoxing your body off of “the horse”. As we always tell you: we try to make sure our information is 100% accurate, but urge users to do their due diligence before deciding on a course of action for drug treatment.

Those experiencing withdrawal symptoms from heroin will likely see adverse effects for 3-10 days, with longer lasting craves occurring for some time thereafter. Withdrawal effects noticed during this time will likely include: chills, fever, nausea, pain, sweating, diarrhea, lack of sleep, lack of appetite, and more.

Those addicted to heroin should contact a doctor before stopping to see if someone can monitor your detox program and prescribe a prescription drug that will lessen the severity of your withdrawal. Also, if you feel comfortable, let your family and friends know of your decision. They may be able to help you through this difficult process.

After you get clean, it is important to make sure that you have a support system in place that will allow you to have the best chance at success. You do not want to have friends around that were supporting your habit, as negative attitudes and the cravings for heroin could help draw you back in to a drug that you tried so hard to get away from.

We wish you the best of luck on your journey to detoxify your body from the warm spell of heroin. We know that this is one of the hardest things that you can kick, and hope that you a successful and lead a happy, sober life in the future.
