Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Wilkes-Barre

Heroin is also known as Diamophorine. It induces around a 6-8 hour high and is of the opium poppy variety.

One reason for the increase in heroin addiction is because of the tighter control on prescription drugs by doctors. This has shifted those who opted for a quick high to the cheaper alternative. Furthermore, research concludes that almost one third of those who try heroin get addicted to it.

Risks of Heroin Addiction

Heroin enters the brain quickly and the user feels a rushing sensation. While using the drug, an individual can experience nausea, vomiting, itching, anxiety, fatigue and dry mouth. The drug has effects that can prove to be life devastating.

Prolonged usage of heroin can increases the chances for over dosage, chronic disease, HIV, cause collapsed veins, skin infections, liver disease, scarred veins, and infection of the heart lining and valves.

Withdrawal Symptoms

With the effects it has on the addicts brain, heroin can cause severe withdrawal symptoms. Abstaining from heroin for as little as 12 hours can cause the addict to feel anxious or agitated. Other symptoms include:

These issues can go on for several weeks, after which the addict becomes aggressive, restless, and starts to have sleep issues. The euphoric feelings associated with drug use turn around 180 degrees, and the addict can go into depression as well.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is one very powerful and highly addictive drug after methamphetamine. It causes increased dependency with feelings of euphoria. The person starts to feel lively, energetic, and confident and loses balance of mind. Prolonged use of cocaine has serious harmful effects which include anxiety, paranoia, and irritability.

Cocaine addiction is caused by sniffing, snorting or smoking cocaine. Snorting means taking cocaine through the nose. The lasting effect of cocaine depends on the method by which cocaine is taken in. Smoking gives a direct high but lasts for 5-10 minutes. If cocaine is sniffed or snorted the effect lasts for 15-30 minutes.
