Heroin Rehab

Battling with heroin addiction isn’t a rare thing. Thousands of people in this country struggle with it, yet out of that number only a fraction of them succeed and ever get the treatment they need. What’s bizarre about this is that there are programs out there that claim to have an amazing success rate in helping these people get clean and stay clean.
The heroin rehab is for anyone who is using the drug and just can’t stop. Heroin addiction is a life threatening epidemic that doesn’t discriminate, it affects the young, old, rich and poor alike. To continue to use despite the consequences isn’t your only option. There is help out there…and we want to help!

Signs and symptoms of heroin use and addiction are: dilated pupils, scratching, runny nose, sleepiness, sudden euphoric behavior, nausea. Those who are addicted to heroin are not likely to admit that they are, so it’s best that family and friends be made aware of some of the symptoms so that when they see the signs, they are ready they can step and help. Heroin addicts NEED help. They can’t stop! Besides the desire to stay high is the physical dependence on the drug, they stop using they get sick.

If the addicted individual is unable to see the importance of getting clean or may even be unwilling the next available step is intervention. Bringing them face to face with the truth has helped many see the destruction they are causing to themselves as well as their loved ones. What needs to be realized is they will die if they don’t get help.

There are 3 basic features that go onto heroin rehab, theses are: detox, counseling, and aftercare.

Stage 1 is detox. If done correctly, detox can reduce the withdrawal symptoms considerably, with certain medications such suboxone, and others the process becomes somewhat bearable. The goal is to keep the individual engaged and some active in his/her process of recovery in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms as they cleanse the toxins from their system in a controlled environment. Depending upon the length of their heroin addiction and the amount of use, most addicts can get through the detox period or at least the worst of it in 10 – 14 days with medication.

Once on the other side of detox, we move into the treatment plan designed by a clinical team of counselors, therapists and even physical trainers. By developing a support group of their peers and one-on-one sessions with a therapist, they will work on the core issues that caused them to seek comfort in such a destructive drug. Working together with counselors and other recovering individuals, they develop the strength and support to overcome their addiction, one day at a time. This is not an overnight process by any means, which leads us to the final phase.

Continued care or aftercare has proven to be highly effective in long term recovery. The accountability to oneself and the treatment team for an extended time has allowed many to find their way back to a regular life free from active addiction. Getting support from your loved ones and friends is crucial to recovery and going through life, especially when everyday stress piles up on you. Although it’s not easy, we must try and overcome all obstacles to gain a better tomorrow.
