Getting through heroin or other opiate withdrawal is a very difficult process both physically and mentally. It’s important that someone has the proper medical intervention in place in order to manage symptoms effectively and comfortably. Often times, when people are using heroin, the heroin might be mixed with other substances with or without the individual knowing about it. Because of this, these other substances may cause additional complications in the detox process and might require different medical support in case there are life-threatening symptoms. If the individual was using benzodiazepines or alcohol for example, there are some life-threatening symptoms that come along with the detox process of these substances. If you or someone you know are wanting to come off of heroin, get in touch with an addiction specialist as soon as possible to discuss your options.
