How is Heroin Addiction Detected?
Heroin users stand the best chance of sustained recovery when they receive treatment as soon as possible. It can be difficult to detect when someone is using heroin, however, because users will usually attempt to hide their drug use.
Warning signs that a loved one might be abusing or addicted to heroin include:
- Lethargy or sleepiness
- Unexplained and sudden weight loss
- Poor hygiene or changes in appearance
- Loss of interest in daily activities
- Constricted pupils or bloodshot eyes
- New, unusual problems at work or school
- Lying about or hiding their behavior
