  • 1. If someone takes Heroin regularly then his body starts developing resistance towards it and that is when a person gets addicted to it. The large dose of this drug can lead to fatal respiratory depression and this drug can also be consumed to commit suicide. Once addicted to the drug the person craves for it strongly and keeps on developing tolerance to higher doses eventually. Pregnant women may have miscarriage or still birth because of the effect of heroin. Even the infants in the embryo may have severe problems in development of the body and brain. The people who are long term users of the drug can have collapsed veins, infection of the heart valves and lining, abscesses, pulmonary complications and all these, if not treated, the person becomes weak and prone to many diseases and infections. A person suffering from this stage should be taken to a drug rehab center so that he can be brought back to normal life. Drug rehab is aimed to reduce the effect of the drug from the brain and body. When someone consumes this drug for long time then it may hit the brain-barrier and eventually stops the blood flow. This disables the brain from controlling the body parts and the body functions. The ability of reasoning, logic and thinking are also badly affected. The overdose may also lead to death because it slows down the nervous system and the respiratory system. Here it becomes essential that the person is given timely drug treatment. Many drug treatment centers are working towards bringing people out of this addiction. If there is an addict who needs to be treated then he should be taken to a specialized drug treatment center. An addict feels emotionally very weak and fragile and that is why there are special rehab programs that help them to build up the lost confidence along with the treatment. The trained counselors help them to focus on improving their condition. They are given opportunity to divert their mind and socialize a lot. Every individual is a unique case and that is why there are programs that are aimed to meet the requirement of a particular addict. Each drug rehab program is customized according to the condition of the addict and the way he responds to them. These programs deal with spiritual, psychological and physical need of the addict. There are different programs for gender specific requirements. Most of these centers have inpatients and the patients live at the rehab center during the treatment. Patients or their
