Get Help for a Loved One

Opioid use is at tragic levels today, whether it involves OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet or fentanyl. Heroin use also is rising, thanks to its low cost and ready availability. Known on the street as horse, tar or smack, heroin is an opioid derived from the poppy, although also are synthetic versions of the drug. It triggers brain receptors that alleviate pain and create pleasure. Once hooked on heroin, it can quickly become a daily necessity — and the addiction only increases over time. Continual exposure can create both short- and long-term damage to the body and brain. If you or someone you love is struggling with heroin dependence, you’re not alone. Symetria Recovery pioneered an unheard of 88% successful recovery methodolgy. Our caring and committed staff of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses and therapists treat heroin recovery safely and professionally at multiple treatment centers throughout the Chicago area.

At our Chicagoland heroin recovery treatment locations in Des Plaines, Highland Park, Lakeview, Palos Heights and Naperville, we have physicians on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Contact us anytime at 888-782-6966 and set up a complimentary consultation to learn about our Chicago heroin rehab centers.

Warning Signs and Symptoms of Heroin Dependency or Addiction

Admitting use or addiction to heroin is not a sign of weakness — in fact, it’s the first step toward recovery. People from all walks of life end up addicted to heroin. There is no one demographic or profile that fits every patient. It can happen to anyone. 

There are many reasons people end up addicted to heroin. It could be because you want relief from emotional or physical pain. Maybe you are recovering from some kind of abuse or trauma. Peer pressure may be involved. Whatever the case, once addicted, it’s extremely difficult to break the dependence without support.

How do you know when you or a loved one is in need of intervention? Some of the common warning signs of heroin addiction include:

  • Obsessively thinking about your next hit
  • Isolating yourself from loved ones
  • Nosebleeds
  • Dry mouth, runny nose, watery eyes
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Itchiness
  • Scabs and sores
  • An irregular heartbeat
  • Slowed breathing
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Mood swings, such as bouncing from depression to euphoria
  • Dishonest behavior, especially about whereabouts or activities
  • Criminal activity
