The Dangers of Snorting Drugs

  • The negative impact on your nasal cavity 
  • Possible drug overdose 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Problems smelling 
  • Increase in contracting viruses 

Signs Someone Is Snorting Drugs

There are several physical and psychological signs that a person may be snorting drugs. If you suspect that your loved one may be taking this approach to consuming drugs, some of the telltale signs include:

  • Increased heart rate 
  • Dramatic increase or decrease in body temperature 
  • Mood swings 
  • General issues with their physical health 

Remember, if you have concerns our addiction treatment team is always available to speak with you about advice diagnosis, or treatment options. We can also guide you when it comes to further warning signs of drug abuse or through the process of organizing an intervention. 

What to Do if You Suspect Someone is Snorting Drugs

There are several things that you can do if you suspect that a loved one may be suffering from drug abuse and snorting drugs. For example, something that you should encourage them to do is to reach out to an addiction treatment facility for guidance when it comes to working through what they may be experiencing. If they opt to reach out to Resurgence Behavioral Health, for example, they will have the opportunity to speak with a treatment team who will work with them to put together a personalized addiction treatment plan. 

There is a possibility that your loved one may need to begin their recovery journey in a detox program. Detox will provide you with the time that you need to work through the withdrawal symptoms that you may experience in the first few hours and days of your newfound sobriety. On average, drug detox is something that will last approximately seven days with the worst of your time in detox developing over the first three days. 

After detox, a plan for overall recovery can be developed and confirmed. If you prefer the environment that detox offers, then you may find that you prefer to work through an inpatient treatment program. An inpatient treatment program gives you the opportunity to live on the campus of your treatment facility during the time that you’re in recovery. You will have around-the-clock access to your addiction treatment team and be able to interact with others that are working through their own treatment program. If you’re unable to commit to an inpatient program due to work or school responsibilities, you can always decide to work through an outpatient treatment program which will give you more flexibility when it comes to your overall treatment plan. 

At Resurgence Behavioral Health treatment center, we have experience working with clients that come from all walks of life. Whether you find yourself struggling with an addiction to prescription medications or you’re suffering from another type of drug misuse, you can rest assured that our recovery team will be there for you and with you every step of the way. For more information about our drug rehab including our approach to relapse prevention, we encourage you to get in touch with us today at (855) 458-0050.
