Drugs like OxyContin and other Opiate drugs such morphine, codeine, Dilaudid, methadone are not illegal and don’t carry the same stigma as heroin. These Opiate drugs are now the new starter drugs that our kids are finding in the family medicine cabinets. Once the supply is gone they move on to street drugs. Heroin an “Opiate” is considered to be one of the most addictive drugs sold illegally today. Next thing you know years later if they are lucky enough not to die or end up in prison. The now 18-25 year old’s are showing up in opiate detoxs/drug rehabs as full blown Heroin and Opiate addicts after years of abuse.
Someone who is addicted to Heroin will go to any length to obtain it. Moreover, when such a person stops taking the drug he or she will suffer serious physical consequences of withdrawal. A detoxification for heroin addiction is usually necessary to get this drug out of the users system. There are many excellent detoxes for Heroin addiction and the drug rehab Center works as part of a treatment network with many of them.
Treatment for Heroin addiction will vary according to the length of time which someone has been addicted , to their physical symptoms and medical condition in general and to whatever other drugs , including alcohol, which they may have been mixing with their use of Heroin. People generally will use heroin in two ways, either snorting or injecting. The first time a person uses Heroin the drug causes a feeling of extreme euphoria ( and sometimes paranoia ) and this is intoxicating. The drug also has noticeable effects on the user physically ; heaviness all over his body, skin flushes, and dry mouth. Heroin also affects the brain of the user including the central nervous system. In truth, Heroin causes symptoms which mimic in many ways those of a person having a mild stroke, such as a very slow gait, and a hard time talking and impaired physical movement of the extremities.
Long time repeated use of Heroin can cause damage to the lungs and weaken the circulatory system. It can also cause clogging of the blood vessels which affects vital organs such as the heart, liver, and kidneys. The drug can be deadly if use continues.
Treatment for Heroin addiction is deigned to help the user stop taking the drug which will hopefully mean that his or her physical damage will repair itself with time. Also, since a long time Heroin user will likely have ruined his or her relationships with family and friends and have experienced other negative social , legal and career consequences from the addiction treatment is also designed to begin the process of restoring the person back into normal society. With time in recovery ,away from the drug , the former user can be restored to a hopeful state of mind and body.
The Rehab Center is an addiction treatment rehab facility which can help the Heroin addict find freedom from the addiction. Rehab helps people in the recovery process from this addiction as we start to case manage the addict right from the beginning during the detoxification process, known to be the hardest phase during heroin addiction treatment.
Heroin addiction rehab is a place of healthy re entry back into normal life. Recovery provides a spiritual environment for the recovering person to meditate, relax, and learn why he or she has sought drug use as an escape from life. Someone in treatment at a drug rehab will receive one-on-one, group, and family counseling with the goal being to restore this person back to a healthy normal life, restoring relationships with their loved ones, accepting behaviors, consequences and actions of the past, and being inspired by the struggles and triumphs of other addicts in recovery.
