Heroin withdrawal often produces side effects which can be uncomfortable and can lead addicts to want more of their drug. While heroin detox is not usually life threatening, it does take determination and assistance to accomplish. The Discovery House’s heroin addiction withdrawal treatment program successfully helps individuals cleanse their body and life from this devastating drug.
Heroin is a very addicting drug, one that can quickly lead the user to experience drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms when the drug use is stopped. Users experience a wide range of heroin withdrawal symptoms, including aches and pains, diarrhea, increased sweat and tears, nausea, vomiting and flu-like symptoms. Heroin withdrawal can also cause depression, sleeplessness and restlessness. All of these things can quickly lead the addict to turn back to heroin in order to alleviate the symptoms, which typically last about a week.
The Discovery House drug alcohol treatment center provides sub-acute heroin withdrawal treatment, during which time our compassionate and caring staff are present to monitor residents carefully. We are able to help residents see past their discomfort and strive to achieve the goal of sobriety that they have committed to. It is during the sub-acute withdrawal stage that individuals may feel weak and question their decision to get clean. The certified counseling staff at our luxury rehab facilities are available 24 hours a day to help during these challenging times and throughout the treatment process at The Discovery House.
Heroin Withdrawal Treatment
The Discovery House’s heroin withdrawal treatment provides residents with the tools necessary to remain clean. Once the sub-acute detox phase is complete, the person will transition to our inpatient heroin addiction treatment programs, where they will continue to cleanse their body of heroin. Our long term treatment centers for addiction use methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neurofeedback, Nutrition Therapy, Music Therapy and Psycho-Drama to help the person identify areas of their life that need to be addressed and then work to heal the entire individual—body, mind and spirit.
