ID-100215083Those with a heroin addiction
know just how serious an illness it is.  The initial high obtained from them slowly fades away and the more they take painkillers the higher doses are needed to obtain (chase) that same high. This vicious cycle continues for those addicted to chasing the “high” the received the very first time.

 

 

Opioids are drugs that either are derived from opiates such are morphine, codeine or heroin. Examples of opioids include some prescription painkillers (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone) and heroin.

3An individual is generally considered opioid dependent when 2 things occur:

++ repeated opioid use is needed in order to feel good or to avoid feeling bad

++ The  opioid use continues in spite of its negative effects. For example, people who are opioid dependent will feel a need to keep using opioids even if it hurts the user’s health, job, finances, or family.

 

Top 10 symptoms of  those with a heroin addiction

41. Usage Increase – Over time, it is common for individuals addicted to taking prescription medications to grow tolerant to the effects of their prescribed dose. If someone you know seems to be increasing his/her dose over time, this is an indication that the amount they were taking is no longer providing them relief.

2. Change in Personality – Changes in a person’s normal behavior can be a sign of dependency. Shifts in energy, mood, and concentration may occur as every day responsibilities become secondary to the need for the relief the prescription provides.

3. Social Withdrawal – A person addicted to painkillers may withdraw from family, friends and other social interaction.

4. Ongoing Use – Continued usage after a medical condition has improved will result in the person needing extensions on his/her prescription. The person might talk of how they are “still feeling pain” and need just a little longer on the medication in order to get well. He or she might also complain frequently about the doctors who refused to write the prescription for one reason or another.

5. Time Spent on Obtaining Prescriptions – A person addicted to painkillers will spend large amounts of time driving great distances and visiting multiple doctors to obtain the drugs. Watch for signs that he or she seems preoccupied with a quest for medication, demonstrating that the drug has become their top priority.

6. Change in Daily Habits and Appearance – Personal hygiene may diminish as a result of a drug addiction. Sleeping and eating habits change, and a person may have a constant cough, runny nose and red, glazed eyes.

7. Neglects Responsibilities – A person addicted to painkillers may call in sick to work more often, and neglect household chores and bills.

8. Increased Sensitivity – Normal sights, sounds and emotions might become overly stimulating to the person. Hallucinations, although perhaps difficult to monitor, may occur as well.

9. Blackouts and Forgetfulness – Another clear indication of dependence is when the person regularly forgets events that have taken place and appears to be suffering blackouts.

10. Defensiveness – When attempting to hide a drug dependency, a person addicted to painkillers can become very defensive if they feel their secret is being discovered. They might even react to simple requests or questions by lashing out.
