Heroin and other opiates are widely regarded as some of the toughest drugs from which to recover. Their effects on the brain are very powerful, releasing massive amounts of dopamine from the very first use … and sometimes proving addiction just as quickly. If you or a loved one wants to break the cycle and return to a life of normalcy, there is little question that you will need help doing it.
While many people may think of opiate addiction as shooting up or snorting heroin, that’s not the only path to full-blown dependency. In fact, a number of legal prescription drugs are opiate-based, including codeine, hydrocodone, fentanyl, oxycodone and morphine. All of these drugs are capable of creating extreme addiction in users, even if they’ve only taken them a few times.
Given the potentially disastrous and even life-threatening consequences of addiction, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction to heroin or another opiate, there is an answer.
Most physicians recommend first ensuring that the addicted individual doesn’t go into serious withdrawal, usually through medical detox overseen by physicians and nurses. This ensures that the tapering off period, while unpleasant, isn’t dangerous. We use the latest medical techniques as a way to ease the negative side effects of withdrawal without creating the high.
From there, a variety of recovery treatment options exist, from 12 step therapy to one-on-one counseling to group sessions at our inpatient residential program. These seek to help recovering individuals create better tools to handle the issues that led them to use in the first place.
