the physical & mental effects of heroin abuse

Signs of Heroin

Known as an extremely potent opiate, heroin acts on your brain’s reward system to produce dopamine and endorphins and give you pleasurable feelings like reduced anxiety, drowsiness, and general contentment, and this rush can act quickly and last for four to five hours at a time.

However, there are many dangers both short and long-term that come with abusing heroin. Some of these include:

In addition to these negative health effects, long-term heroin addiction also changes your brain chemistry over time. These changes can make it much harder for a person to stop using heroin without professional help, and it can make you feel powerless. Even when a person’s life is falling apart and they begin losing control over things like employment and relationships, it can feel impossible for someone with an addiction to stop using.
