Heroin Detox an Heroin Rapid Detox
Many people who become dependent on heroin or other opiates feel like there’s no hope for recovery; it is simply not true. Great advances have been made in recent years in the field of addiction through science. It’s true that heroin is an illegal narcotic that has a strong grip that can start at first use. But, there are extremely effective heroin detox programs that can eliminate suffering caused by heroin withdrawal and bring about lasting recovery.
Heroin can be physically and psychologically addicting. It used to be that people thought of heroin users as hardened addicts who had no willpower and were bent on self-destruction. Heroin addiction can affect anyone, and people from all walks of life have found themselves in this predicament. As many professionals can attest, one reason for this is because prescription painkillers such as OxyContin can be a gateway to heroin use. It’s often cheaper and easier to obtain heroin on the black market than prescription painkillers.
The disease of heroin addiction is progressive and does not usually get better on its own. People may try to stop taking heroin for a period, but many return to use when the painful heroin withdrawal sets in. This is usually a physically and emotional difficult time, as symptoms of heroin detox can include strong cravings, flu-like symptoms, insomnia, anxiety and agitation.
Heroin Detox and Heroin Addiction Treatment Options
There are multiple methods of treatment available for heroin addiction. Some choose opiate substitution therapy with Suboxone or Methadone. These replacement medications are opiates and can temporarily help patients avoid the withdrawals from heroin. Opiate substitution therapy can be used for a determined length of time or others opt for long term use, but because they are opiates themselves it can cause dependency and addiction. There may be some who want to rid themselves completely of opiates and may seek other options such as a medical inpatient heroin detox in conjunction with psychological aftercare. This unique combination of services allows patients to rid their system of toxic substances like heroin while medically supervised, in the most comfortable and convenient manner available.
