Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin Addiction Treatment is usually a 2 or 3 step process. Heroin Detox is not a pleasant ordeal to go through. Although it is possible to accomplish on your own, most people are unable to bear the intense effects of Heroin Withdrawal and usually get high to feel well again.  A medically supervised heroin detox will be less intense and more bearable for most addicts who have been using for an extended period of time. When alcoholism is added to the detox it can complicate matters because detox from alcohol is much more dangerous than Heroin Detox.

Heroin addiction treatment needs to not only focus on detox but also help the addict to learn certain coping skills and addiction management skills that help the addict to lessen his cravings to use. Heroin addiction withdrawal can be extremely painful and hard to go though, but using certain nutrients, doctors show, lessen withdrawal symptoms. Instead of just focusing on a “7 day rehab” we need to focus on coping skills and addiction management techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy to help addicts to learn to manage intrusive thoughts to use. Through extensive therapy addicts can learn to live a productive sober life without Heroin or other drugs.

Sometimes, it is necessary for the user to relocate away from the home town temptations which will still be there when they get out of rehab. It’s hard to ignore cravings when your “friends” are still using Heroin or Opiates or both. The temptation to be a part of that community is strong and is responsible for many relapses.  It takes an individual with strong willpower to overcome these temptations, a personality strait not usually found in addicts. This is the reason many people prefer to go to rehab in other states like Florida. Besides the great weather, it gets them away from the “evils” of their hometown.
