According to medical sites that I have read, yes you can die from heroin withdrawal but it is rare. It is preventable with medically assisted withdrawal. The ways that you can die from it are: Persistent vomiting and diarrhoea may result, if untreated, in dehydration, hypernatraemia (elevated blood sodium level) and resultant heart failure. That is why it is important to be in a medical environment when detoxing.

It is not often that someone dies as a result of heroin detox.

You may wish you died but in the end you will be alive and well probably feeling better than ever with a new outlook on life and a can do attitude
