What Are the Physical and Emotional Effects of Heroin Addiction?

Heroin is an extremely dangerous drug that causes severe physical and emotional side effects. Going through heroin withdrawal also causes problems such as vomiting, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, and intense cravings for the drug, which is why it’s best to check into a rehabilitation center in Maryland for heroin addiction recovery. If an individual fails to seek heroin addiction treatment, he or she can experience decreases in heart rate and respiratory function. Sometimes, breathing may cease altogether.

You can hear more about heroin addiction treatment by watching this clip from “The Doctors” TV show. You’ll learn how heroin affects the brain, causes physical symptoms, and results in psychological addiction. You’ll also hear from a recovering heroin addict about the importance of working on recovery every day to prevent relapse.
