From 1999-2018, more than 115,000 Americans died from overdoses related to heroin. Although not everyone that tries heroin becomes addicted, regular use of the drug can lead to addiction within as little as two to three weeks. With regular use, people develop tolerance, and need more of the drug to achieve the same effects. Heroin withdrawal occurs when the body tries to adjust to a decrease or discontinuance in drug use. When someone quits cold turkey without medical supervision and support, the withdrawal effects may prove difficult to manage.
