About Heroin Abuse

Heroin is an extremely powerful opiate drug and can be injected, snorted, or smoked. All three routes deliver the drug to the brain quickly, which contributes to the immediate feeling of euphoria, but also the extremely high risk of addiction. Studies have shown some deterioration of the brain’s white matter due to heroin use, which may affect decision-making abilities, the ability to regulate behavior, and responses to stressful situations.

As you know, heroin is highly addictive, both mentally and physically. Those who enter Footprints Beachside Recovery often suffer from a withdrawal period that can be extremely uncomfortable. A benefit of many heroin treatment programs is that they commonly include some form of medically supervised detox and around-the-clock support to keep those recovering a safe and comfortable as possible—minimizing relapse risks.
