You know something is going on with a loved one, but you’re not sure exactly what it is. Maybe you’re already aware that substance abuse is a problem. If you suspect heroin is the reason for your loved one’s behavioral or physical changes, you need to recognize the signs that a heroin addict displays in order to get help before it’s too late.
Is Your Loved One a Heroin Addict?
Whether you already know heroin is your loved one’s drug of choice, signs of heroin abuse that you should lookout for include:
- Extreme drowsiness
- Small pupils
- Runny nose
- Appearance neglect
- Lack of appetite
You may also find drug paraphernalia such as syringes, rubber tubing, and glass pipes near your loved one’s possessions.
Seeking Help for Your Loved One
If your loved one confirms your fears, you should act right away. The longer a person uses heroin, the bigger the toll the drug takes. Anyone with a heroin addiction is often unable to think or remember things clearly. It can be devastating to standby and watch your loved one go through the struggles of addiction.
Getting a heroin addict, or any type of substance abuser, to admit they need help can be challenging. You probably feel conflicted about getting him or her into treatment and wonder if you may have contributed to the addiction. You don’t have to feel alone or guilty. What matters is that you’re committed to helping your loved one get the treatment he or she desperately needs.
