Understanding Heroin Addiction Treatment in Palm Springs
Heroin is a highly addictive opioid. When it becomes attached to opioid receptors, it releases a dopamine rush, creating the high that users crave. This high is what keeps people coming back to the drug, regardless of its dangers, which are many. It’s too easy to get caught up in a rush and completely ignore the signs that you are at risk of serious health issues, overdose, or even death.
Heroin is easily accessible and affects all walks of life. People can become addicted after using the drug just once. Even more difficult is removing the drug from your system. The withdrawal symptoms can be brutal, which leads people back to using the drug. This vicious cycle of addiction requires professional help to break the cycle.
There are both short- and long-term physical effects of heroin use. These include:
- Skin disease
- Heart and respiratory issues
- Liver and kidney disease
- Hepatitis B or C
Addiction affects almost every part of your life, including relationships, jobs, family dynamics, and finances. If you or a loved one are struggling with an addiction, seek help as soon as possible. Treatment facilities like Palo Verde Wellness can be a wealth of information to make the best decision for your care.
