Heroin Rehab

Heroin is an illegal but unfortunately common drug among users both young and old. Many are chasing the rush of heroin’s unique “high.” There are a few ways to take heroin, with some methods giving you the rush within just a few seconds. Other methods take longer to kick in, but the effects may last longer. These effects include feelings of contentment, drowsiness, relieved tension, and reduced anxiety. Depending on the dose, the effects of heroin can last for several hours. Regular heroin users must use it frequently – sometimes as little as every six hours – to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

Between the high the drug offers and the desire to avoid an unpleasant withdrawal, it’s dangerously addictive. Many fall into a dependent cycle that too quickly leads to addiction. Our rehab center provides a safe place for effective and long-lasting recovery. Seeking help is so often the hardest part – let us walk you through the rest of it with our compassionate heroin addiction treatment for all.

Heroin Recovery Program

While heroin affects men and women just as seriously, men and women react, process, and deal with things differently. This goes for the addiction itself as well as treatment and recovery. This is why we created a heroin rehab center that focuses on every individual differently. Our heroin recovery program is tailored to each person and their unique way of going through something like addiction.

We have a wonderful team of highly trained and qualified counsellors and other support staff. They are well-versed in multiple therapies and techniques to help you heal and recover in your own way. Each week, you’ll have several one-on-one sessions where your therapist will carry out a personalized care plan based on your unique personality and circumstances.

Common therapies for heroin addiction recovery include:

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy: DBT for heroin addiction is often very effective. This treatment starts helping a patient accept and validate their feelings and experiences. Then, it helps them simultaneously accept that they must make positive changes and better manage their emotions to move forward and heal.
  • Dual-Diagnosis: Our dual-diagnosis treatment for heroin addiction is extremely helpful for those suffering from co-occurring conditions such as depression or anxiety. Mental health is easily disturbed by addiction, and our staff is prepared to help you work through both at once, if necessary.
  • Group therapy: In addition to your private sessions, you’ll have the chance to participate in some productive group sessions. Here, you’ll cover some deep and useful topics that can help you learn more about yourself and offer fresh perspectives on recovery. You’ll learn additional coping mechanisms and you’ll soon feel less alone surrounded by like-minded people. We believe that group therapy is a crucial part of substance abuse treatment for heroin.

Heroin becomes addictive quickly, and many don’t even realize they’re on that path until it’s already happening. If you’re concerned about yourself or a loved one, there are some signs and symptoms you can consider to determine if addiction may be taking hold:

  • Frequent slurred speech
  • Drowsiness
  • Agitation
  • Depression
  • Memory problems
  • A reduced sense of pain
  • Pupils smaller than normal
  • Runny nose if (if snorting the drug)
  • Needle marks (if injecting)
  • Drastic changes in appearance
  • A decline in hygiene habits
  • Engaging in dangerous or risky behaviour
  • Getting high in dangerous situations where staying sober would be much safer
  • Sudden and frequent money problems
  • A sudden increase in issues at work and/or school
  • Repeatedly using the drug despite knowing the negative consequences

If you’re noticing some or all of these things in yourself or someone in your life, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’re happy to answer any questions and provide as much guidance as we can.

Many of the physical reactions users have to heroin are unpleasant, but they often pale in comparison to the more serious and long-term risks of drug use. Frequent and consistent use of heroin puts you at risk for many debilitating and sometimes irreversible health problems:

  • Pulmonary infections
  • Chronic constipation
  • Liver disease
  • Collapsed veins
  • Depression
  • Skin infections
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart infections
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Heightened stress
  • Infertility
  • Miscarriage
  • Lowered sex drive
  • Lack of impulse control
  • Clogged blood vessels
  • Asthma (new or worsening)
  • Brain damage

These are some of the more concerning physical effects, but heroin can affect other areas of your life as well. Dependency on any drug eventually changes your brain and how it works, which can greatly affect your mental health.

Addictions also have a serious effect on your social obligations. Relationships with family and friends can become strained, while you’re also at risk of jeopardizing your professional life. We offer comprehensive women’s heroin addiction rehab to help you before the situation gets this bad.

Our residential heroin rehab strives to offer an approach to healing and recovery that addresses your mind, body, and spirit. We offer a range of additional therapies and activities that we believe will help you stay centred, relaxed, and focused. These are things you just won’t get if you opt for outpatient treatment.

Some of these activities include:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Art therapy
  • Extra meetings and sessions, such as NA, CA, and AA
  • Access to nature
  • Workout equipment
  • And more

These things mean to enhance our already comprehensive substance abuse treatment for those addicted to heroin. Not only will they help your treatment and enrich your experience, but you may also leave our heroin detox program with some healthy new hobbies and habits.
