Heroin Withdrawal – Painful and Frightening, Yet Surmountable

Heroin withdrawal can be painful and frightening. The physical symptoms of heroin withdrawal will peak between 48 and 72 hours following the last dose with the addict often showing visible signs of dilated pupils, panic and anxiety, chills, muscle cramps, nausea and profuse sweating similar to flu symptoms. Most heroin withdrawal symptoms will dissipate within a week but amazingly cravings and relapse can occur weeks and months later.

Professional intervention, especially a treatment plan encompassing pharmaceutical and behavioral approaches, will give a heroin addict the best chance for successful recovery. Prior to commitment for professional treatment, often those affected by heroin use will turn to the "information highway" for help and answers.
