man in need of heroin rehab treatmentHeroin is an illegal opiate that’s only semi-synthetic because it is synthesized from morphine, which is derived from the opium poppy. Heroin is most often used as an analgesic, for self-medication, and recreationally. As a depressant, heroin creates a relaxed and lethargic euphoria that can hit within seconds of the drug being injected. However, heroin can also be smoked or snorted, and while the high doesn’t hit as quickly, there is also a lower chance of overdose, and addiction doesn’t occur as quickly.

What Does Heroin Addiction Look Like?

Heroin is a typical opioid in terms of how addictive it is, and it leads to both physical and psychological addiction. While users may be able to hide their addiction for a brief time, there are many telltale signs you can look for if you believe a friend or loved one may be in trouble and require heroin treatment.

On top of these immediate and short-term effects, long-term heroin abuse can also lead to dangerous health complications, such as heart problems, chronic pulmonary disease, blood-borne infections from needle sharing, blood clots, bacterial infections, liver disease, arthritis, and seizures. Without the help from an effective heroin treatment center, many of these health problems can be life-threatening, and addicts are always at risk of dying from an overdose.

  • Dry mouth
  • Shortness of breath
  • Poor performance at work or school
  • Increased sleeping time
  • Constricted pupils
  • Disorientation
  • Alertness followed by sleepiness
  • Sudden behavioral changes
  • Wearing long pants and sleeves
  • Lack of hygiene and attention to appearance
  • Apathy, lost interest in goals and hobbies, social withdrawal
  • Lying, deception, and stealing or borrowing money or valuables
  • Constantly runny nose
  • Slurred speech
  • Refusal to make eye contact
  • Skin infections, abscesses, cuts, scabs, and bruising
  • Weight loss
  • Track marks on arms and legs

Detoxing from Heroin

Heroin may be one of the hardest drugs to detox from because sudden cessation in a long-term addict can result in the inability to function properly, medical problems, and possibly even death, especially when there are other pre-existing medical risks. Users who wish to get clean are best to seek the help of heroin treatment centers, where addicts can detox under the supervision of trained professionals and knowledgeable medical staff. If you are considering heroin treatment at a facility like Beachway, it can help to prepare yourself by knowing what to expect from your detox. For instance, the symptoms of heroin withdrawal are very similar to a bad flu, and they include:
  • Excessive sweating and uncontrolled crying
  • Muscle and bone aches and cramps
  • Intense cravings
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Cold sweats, fever, and chills
  • Insomnia
  • Depression, anxiety, and mood swings
  • Appetite lossThese symptoms generally start appearing within 12 hours of your last dose, become the worst between one and three days of being sober and generally taper off within a week. However, extreme and long-term heroin use can lead to post-acute withdrawal syndrome, where symptoms take weeks or months to subside.

Overcoming Addiction and Preventing a Relapse

While attending a heroin treatment center is a necessary part of the recovery process, preventing a former addict from relapsing is just as important.

During your time in our inpatient heroin treatment program, you will have access to:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions where you can learn to improve your self-esteem and increase your chances of saying no to drugs in the future.
  • Group therapy, where you will share and hear stories from others struggling with the same types of issues, letting you know that you aren’t alone.
  • Music and art therapy, where you can explore alternative methods of coping with stress and dealing with problems.
  • Family therapy, which will give you and your loved ones a safe space to address your addiction, their role in your recovery, and healthy ways of managing conflicts.
  • The Resource Center, which can help you with job seeking and application, continuing education and financial aid applications, and government assistance applications.

Because Beachway focuses on personalized rehab programs instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment, the first step in our heroin addiction recovery is an admission assessment that will include compiling an abuse and addiction history, getting you to sign a release of information for your current physician, and putting together an individualized plan to tackle your recovery. Once your acceptance has gone through, you will have a consultation with one of our medical staff to discuss the length of your drug use and the quantities you’ve been taking. Some of the admission criteria for our heroin treatment program include requiring that you are:

  • At least 18 years old
  • Willing to commit to our rehab program
  • Able to provide yourself with basic care

We are an inclusive detox and recovery facility, and welcome clients from all walks of life, regardless of religion, creed, sexual orientation, cultural background, or physical limitations.

Our unique and customized detox and rehab programs focus on a multiple-therapy approach to treatment (individual, group, family, and alternative counseling), social interactions like movie nights and bowling, physical therapies like yoga, meditation, and gym access, outings like beach excursions and fishing trips, spa services like manicures, pedicures, and massages, and even spiritual healing through our faith-based treatment options.
