Heroin is one drug that often gets a lot of press, and as such the symptoms of heroin withdrawal are also commonly exposed in the media, and thus many people are aware that they are extremely unpleasant and can make it very difficult for an individual to do anything except think about heroin.
However despite their extreme unpleasantness, the withdrawal symptoms from heroin are not actually life threatening in most cases, and for many can be managed with medications such as subutex.
Unfortunately because they are very nasty and include things such as; restlessness, bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold sweats, goosebumps, and leg twitches, those who begin to experience these symptoms are often not physically or psychologically ready to seek help and thus instead of getting help and medications to manage these symptoms, may instead choose to get another fix of heroin for a quick fix.
Thus even though individuals may desperately want to get help for their addiction, when the withdrawal symptoms strike, this can seriously impact their resolve, and they may find themselves using again.
It is thus highly important that individuals who do seek help, are offered continuous support and are not left to cope with the withdrawal symptoms alone, as if they are not offered all the necessary help, they may find they never get over their addiction, despite wanting and needing to.
