"Can my son die from heroin withdrawal?"
Asked by HopetrackerA3 Seen by 195
I’ve heard that heroin withdrawals are deadly if the user attempts to do it on their own. My son believes that he can quit cold turkey, but I’m scared that he may become suicidal. Would it be safer if my son took Suboxone to help him comfortably detox or would that just prolong the withdrawal process? Click here to report this post as inappropriate. flag

Opiate withdrawal is typically not life-threatening, however, they can get very sick. It is always better to err on the side of caution and send him to detox. Any form of detox should be done under medical supervision.
