Heroin Addiction Treatment

A Path to Recovery and Renewal

Are you or a loved one struggling with the grip of heroin addiction? Heroin, a potent opiate known for its intense euphoria, has surged in popularity due to its affordability and availability. The opioid epidemic has contributed to its widespread usage, with many turning to heroin after prescription opiate pain pill use. Over 900,000 individuals in the United States are currently battling heroin addiction. However, the absence of safe dosing and chemical quality control puts users at risk of overdose, escalating addiction, and harmful side effects. At 12 South Recovery, we understand the complexities of this challenge, and we’re here to provide you with vital insights into heroin addiction treatment.

Navigating Withdrawal: Your Path to Recovery Starts with Detox

Detoxing from heroin is a pivotal first step toward recovery. Heroin, also known as diamorphine, binds to brain receptors, inducing euphoria and a sense of well-being. Over time, the brain becomes dependent on these chemicals, leading to withdrawal when heroin use ceases. Withdrawal severity varies based on an individual’s drug usage, health, and circumstances.

A Challenging Journey

Initial withdrawal symptoms typically emerge within 6-12 hours after the last dose, marked by anxiety and cravings. Subsequent days bring intensified symptoms, including flu-like sensations, pain, fever, chills, and vomiting. While discomfort may escalate into panic attacks and muscle spasms, most symptoms begin to subside after 4-5 days.

A Safer Journey

At 12 South Recovery, we prioritize your safety and comfort during detox. Our experienced medical team may recommend medically supported detox using buprenorphine or methadone. These medications alleviate withdrawal symptoms, ensuring a smoother transition to the next phase of treatment.

Detox, however, is just the beginning. Our comprehensive addiction treatment addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of heroin addiction.
Our personalized treatment plans include:

Behavioral Therapy: Uncovering the Roots of Addiction

Behavioral therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), helps you identify underlying triggers and develop effective coping strategies. By learning stress management skills, you can break free from negative self-medicating patterns.

Holistic Approaches: Nurturing Mind and Body

Complementary therapies, including mindfulness-based stress reduction, complement traditional treatments. These practices enhance self-awareness, emotional regulation, and overall well-being.

Taking the Next Step: Your Journey to Recovery

Your commitment to recovery paves the way for lasting change. Once detox is complete, transitioning to addiction treatment is crucial. Whether through inpatient or outpatient care, you’ll engage in behavioral therapy, counseling, and complementary therapies.
