Heroin Treatment Program
A heroin addiction can completely take over all aspects of one’s life and destroy healthy relationships in its path.
Heroin is a highly addictive illicit drug derived from morphine. It is common for heroin abuse to stem from an opiate addiction as this street drug can be cheaper and more “accessible” than prescription drugs. The high one experiences from heroin can be extremely intense, which can quickly escalate to a full-on addiction with a need for that same euphoric feeling over and over. As this dangerous addiction starts to intensify, your life can be at risk and seeking professional treatment will be the only way to overcome this disease. Our drug rehab in Chicago provides a customized heroin treatment program that will help you break through the cycle of addiction. We explain how to overcome a heroin addiction so that you can start fresh and live a healthy lifestyle.
What to Expect During Heroin Addiction Treatment
Seeking professional care will be the best thing you can do for yourself before it’s too late. Admitting you have a serious problem is the first step towards complete recovery. A heroin treatment program will start with an initial medical assessment to determine the best level of care for the individual. Someone with a heroin addiction may need a partial hospitalization program or even residential care in order to successfully overcome the addiction. You can expect to receive full-time care in this treatment setting especially during the early stages of treatment when the withdrawal symptoms can be intense.
Heroin Withdrawal Symptoms
The beginning stages of heroin addiction treatment can include uncomfortable and intense withdrawal symptoms that should be medically monitored. Because heroin exits the body quicker than most drugs, the withdrawal symptoms can occur right away. You can expect to feel withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Extreme anxiety and agitation
- Dilated pupils
- Muscle cramps
Everyone will experience different heroin withdrawal symptoms depending on the severity and duration of abuse. Because long-term heroin abuse can affect the brain’s chemical makeup, long-term withdrawal symptoms may persist. A professional addiction treatment center will be able to monitor these symptoms in a safe and comfortable environment.
