  5. How long does it take to detox off of heroin?
Asked: 2017-11-21 08:05:49
I’ve been hiding my heroin habit and now my boyfriend has found out, I know I have to get clean. But I need to know how long the pain of withdrawal will be…

When you take your last hit, expect your body to go into withdrawal about 6 – 12 hours later. You’ll go through a lot of pain for around 5 – 7 days but should be through the worst of the sickness by then. Good luck!

You’re looking at around a week where you’re going to be pretty uncomfortable and ill. You could choose medically assisted detox, which will be a bit shorter and easier to manage.
