Heroin is one of the most potent and addictive drugs out there. Whether mainlining, snorting or smoking, a user can become addicted to heroin from the very first use. If you expect someone you love is doing heroin be sure to seek help from a drug rehab facility immediately. There are many tell-tale signs that someone is using heroin. It is a very difficult thing to hide.
These are the signs to look for to tell if someone is currently on heroin:
â€¢ The pupils of the eyes of someone on heroin will be very small even in low light conditions when they should be dilated.
â€¢ Slowed speech
â€¢ Loss of basic motor skills
â€¢ Drowsy and slow movement
â€¢ Heavy salivating and drooling
â€¢ Consistent “nodding off” during normal activities and abnormal hours
Signs that somebody has been using heroin:
â€¢ Holes and bruises in the fold of the arm
â€¢ Tiny scabs along the veins of the arm
â€¢ Bruises underneath the fingernails
â€¢ Wearing long sleeves even in hot weather
â€¢ Constant stealing or conning
Again, heroin addiction is one of the most brutal and deadly of all addictions, If you suspect someone you know has a heroin problem seek the help of a drug rehab center or certified addiction counselor.
