Heroin is an opioid drug that is synthesized from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky substance, known as “black tar heroin.” At Principles Recovery Center our clinical team is well experienced in the most effective ways of developing effective treatment plans suited to each individual. The country is in an epidemic and time is crucial to saving you or your loved ones life. Our facility specializes in heroin related treatment plans, and puts specific focus on long term opiate related trigger events.
Chronic use of heroin leads to physical dependence, a state in which the body has adapted to the presence of the drug. If a dependent user reduces or stops use of the drug abruptly, he or she may experience severe symptoms of withdrawal. These symptoms—which can begin as early as a few hours after the last drug administration—can include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea and vomiting, cold flashes with goose bumps (“cold turkey”), and kicking movements (“kicking the habit”). Users also experience severe craving for the drug during withdrawal, which can precipitate continued abuse and/or relapse. This is why its imperative to act quickly as post acute withdraw symptoms can easily draw an individual back into addiction. As heroin gets stronger so do the overdose rates in this country.
