What Exactly Is Heroin Withdrawal?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Many people have heard of heroin withdrawal. They have heard of how terrified addicts are of going without heroin, but most people do not know exactly what heroin withdrawal is.

Heroin withdrawal occurs when a person who is addicted to the drug does not have immediate access to heroin. This can occur a few hours or 24 hours from the last use.

When a person is going through heroin withdrawals they will experience the following; nausea, vomiting, body aches, muscle cramps, hot and cold sweats, insomnia, depression, anxiety, irritability, severe cravings and diareah.

Withdrawal symptoms prevent a heroin addict from ever getting away from the drug. They eventually end up getting so scared of the withdrawal symptoms that they refuse to ever “kick” the habit.

The only real way to handle a heroin addiction is to enroll in a long-term, drug and alcohol rehab. One such rehab that is considered a leader in rehabilitation, is Narconon Louisiana.
