Learn More About Heroin Detox

Learn more about detoxification from heroin

Heroin is a substance that, when abused, can lead to the development of an addiction that can have a profoundly negative impact on virtually all aspects of a person’s life.

Given the grave danger that heroin abuse can cause within one’s life, treatment is almost always needed in order to overcome an addiction to this dangerous drug. For those who do not engage in proper, effective treatment, the effects that can result from remaining addicted to heroin can include irreversible physical and mental health consequences, and possibly even death as a result of an overdose.

Considering these consequences, it is imperative to consider professional treatment that includes both therapeutic treatments and detoxification (better known as detox). Detox is a form of care that works to address the physical aspect of addiction at the beginning of one’s recovery. These services can also help individuals set the foundation for the first steps needed to achieve sobriety and remain heroin-free for a lifetime.

What Happens During Withdrawal

Learn more about what happens during withdrawal from heroin

Heroin withdrawal is said to be one of the most painful types of drug withdrawal known today. When someone who has been abusing heroin to the point where his or her body is dependent on it, symptoms of withdrawal are likely to develop when the use of heroin stops.

Withdrawing from heroin can include severe body aches and pains, powerful cravings for continued use, and feeling physically unwell, to name just a few symptoms. Because these symptoms can be so intrusive, many individuals relapse and begin using heroin once more.

However, if an individual participates in care that includes detox services, not only can he or she experience a significantly less painful process of withdrawal, but he or she can also achieve what is needed to make strides towards recovery.

Benefits of Detox

Learn more about the benefits of detox from heroin

When someone does not receive care for a heroin addiction, or if he or she does not engage in detox services for this kind of dependency, the results can be catastrophic. For many who are physically dependent on heroin, one or more relapses on this substance can stop an individual from escaping the confines of this kind of addiction. However, for the individuals who do choose to engage in detox, there is a greater chance that they will be able to prevent relapse and continue on to live healthy, sober lives.

Participation in a detox program allows an individual to achieve the improved health and peace of mind required to understand why and how he or she became addicted to heroin. With these benefits, an individual is able to fully partake in programming, which can help to establish confidence and skills that are needed to keep from abusing opioids like heroin for good.
