Heroin addiction has several signs that are similar those associated with other addictions. A more telling sign is possession of the paraphernalia that are often used to prepare heroin. Such things include burned silver spoons, aluminum foil or gum wrappers that have burn marks, and needles or syringes that are used for things other than medical purposes, among others.
There are also certain behaviors that are common among those abusing heroin. Some of these are deceptive behavior, the avoidance of eye contact, a general lack of interest in hobbies that the substance abuser once enjoyed, and a decrease in concern for hygiene and appearance.
