Saw my daughter for the first time in five or six years. she popped up at my front door and said she needs to withdrawal from heroin. Currently she is withdrawaling on my living room couch. How long are withdrawals from heroin, generally?

I would advise you to get her medical help as quickly as possible. You can’t be certain what drug she’s withdrawing from, and some of the symptoms can actually be dangerous. Heroin withdrawals usually lasts 7 to 10 days but can go on longer if the person has used for a long time. There’s also the psychological factor that needs to be treated as well.

You should encourage her to seek out a rehab facility. Heroin withdrawals can be extremely traumatic and sometimes dangerous when the persons used for a long time. The usual withdrawals can last for more than 10 days and will get worse before they get better.
