Signs of Heroin Addiction

 

Heroin use is on the rise nationwide, with many people falling victim to overdoses of increasingly potent batches.

With fentanyl in the mix, heroin addiction can become deadly. As with any other addiction, heroin does not care about its users. People from all walks of life struggle with heroin addiction, which is why it’s important to understand the signs of heroin addiction. If you see these signs in a loved one, it’s important to try to get them heroin addiction treatment and support them in their recovery.

Signs of Heroin Use and Addiction

Heroin use comes with a variety of indicators, both behaviorally and physically. Users may have changes in mood, acting especially lethargic when they are under the influence of the drug. They may appear to nod off, and they may be very distracted when they are not under the influence of heroin. Other physical signs include used spoons, needles, or baggies around.
