Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin RehabClients admitted to our heroin rehab facility are examined by our medical and clinical staff who will determine the client's level of addiction and treatment protocol to be followed. Our heroin detox center is located on premises, and it is staffed with experienced physicians and nursing personnel who oversee the comfort of our clients' detoxification process on a 24/7 basis. During detox clients are educated on how their bodies react to the removal of toxins, and at the same time they are engaged in biofeedback sessions. This holistic approach in treating individuals struggling with a heroin addiction utilizes the combination of music, choreographed imagery, vibrations and binaural beats which induces a natural meditative state. The purpose of this biofeedback session is to bring balance and harmony to the client's life by teaching them the practice of deep-breathing and the engagement of positive emotional thoughts. When using these techniques, clients are able to establish a coherence baseline and are able to take charge of their emotional reactions.

After detoxification is completed, clients who have a compounded mental health issue such as trauma, depression, anxiety and any other self-destructive behavior will receive individualized therapeutic treatment to address their specific needs.

Conventionally, residential rehab is the recommended choice of treatment for individuals struggling with a heroin addiction, simply because it provides the time and the environment clients need to fully absorb and immerse themselves into the program. In a residential treatment program, clients receive structured therapeutic treatment, alternative holistic therapeutic services, and reside with peers who are going through the same experience and with whom they can share the same thoughts and feelings.

Understanding Heroin Addiction

Understanding Heroin AddictionRegular heroin use changes the functioning of the brain. One result is tolerance, in which more of the drug is needed to achieve the same intensity of effect. Heroin dependence is largely considered a progressive condition, characterized by the need to continue use heroin to avoid withdrawal symptoms, despite undeniable problems associated with continued use. Heroin dependence is a serious health issue, potentially leading to an overall self-destructive lifestyle, including problems relating to loved ones, and chronic health problems. Understanding the underlying issues associated with the individual's heroin abuse is often the key to successful treatment and recovery. For example, individuals struggling with heroin addiction often started abusing heroin to self-medicate. Trauma, depression and anxiety are often associated with heroin abuse. In order for a heroin addict to recover, any of these mental health conditions need to be addressed in conjunction with the medical heroin addiction treatment.

Those who are dependent on heroin experience:

  • A craving for heroin
  • A loss of control over their heroin use and abuse
  • Withdrawal symptoms when they are not using heroin; and
  • an increased tolerance to heroin so that they have to have more to achieve the same effect
