My Dad keeps to himself, and never comes out of his room unless he is leaving the house, my Mom says it’s because of heroin. How do I know if my dad is an addict?

When my Mom was using heroin, I could always tell because she would take my shoelaces, and I couldn’t find a spoon that wasn’t burned. It was sad, she didn’t even really try to hide it from me. She died from an overdose. I hope that doesn’t happen to your dad.

One of the signs of being a heroin addict is depression, which it sounds like your Dad has, another thing to watch out for is hallucinations, or paranoia. Is he picking at his skin? Weight loss. I hope he can see that if it is an addiction, that it is hurtful to his family.
