Narcotics Detox in Long Island
Narcotics are the most dangerous, one-time-use drugs. They are also the most abused and addictive drugs, with the highest risk of life-changing consequences that include overdose and death. One of the factors that pose the highest danger in the use of narcotics is its unknown origin. Narcotics are made with chemicals and substances that can be fatal when used, and they are often made at home, or in a bathtub. Mixing narcotics with alcohol and other drugs increases the risk of strokes and heart attacks. The following is a list of symptoms of narcotics use, that users will experience at some point if they do not stop:
- Rapid Heart Rate
- High Blood Pressure
- Lower Kidney Function
- Heart Attack
- Cognitive Decline
- Neglected Hygiene
Brain scan research has shown the damage narcotics cause to the brain even with one-time use. The long-term use effect of narcotics on mental health leads to depression, anxiety, and ultimately psychosis. Manufacturers of narcotics mix other dangerous additives to the already unsafe production methods, in order to ensure repeat customers through addiction.
