I’ve watched my sister deteriorate over the past few years and she says she wants to get clean. I want to help her get off heroin, but how long is it gonna take?

It’s hard watching someone you love so messed up but helping her get clean will help you both. The withdrawal period is going to be around a week, but sometimes lasts a few days longer.

Around 6 hours or more from when she had her last dose, she’ll go into withdrawal and the physical symptoms like nausea, fever, chills, sweating and cramps will last about 7 days.
