Heroin Addiction Treatment Programs

What is Heroin Addiction?

Many consider heroin to be one of the most addictive substances. Heroin is sought after because of the effect induced when it is taken into the body. Heroin produces a fast-acting high that causes the individual drug abuser to return to using time and time again in an effort to produce the same high. This is in part due to how quickly an individual will build a tolerance in their body to heroin. This rapid development of a tolerance to heroin results in the drug abuser requiring more frequent and increasingly larger doses of the drug to achieve the same bliss-like state (euphoria) that the individual heroin user seeks. While chasing the feeling of the first high, the heroin user inadvertently becomes a heroin addict. The increase in use leads to a physical and mental dependence that feels all-encompassing and inescapable. As heroin is a respiratory depressant, the continued abuse of the drug poses a high risk for overdose and death.

What is Heroin Withdrawal Like?

By the time the physical dependence has developed it is already too late. Breaking free from heroin addiction is a feat few can do on their own. When individuals attempt to cease using heroin, they experience withdrawals from the drug. Heroin withdrawals have been described by those who have experienced the symptoms as “feeling like dying”, “the flu x1,000” and “the worst feeling of my life”. There is validity in these anecdotal statements. Heroin is mentally addictive, but the fear of withdrawals can be even more powerful. The withdrawals from heroin can begin hours after last dosage, with most symptoms beginning 24 hours after the addicted individual’s last use. Heroin withdrawals can be characterized as severe flu-like symptoms. Individuals experiencing withdrawal symptoms from heroin can expect to have body aches, cold sweat, diarrhea, bone aches, vomiting, watery eyes, running nose, as well suffer anxiety and insomnia. A heroin addicted individual will need a medically assisted drug and alcohol detoxification facility. Sobriety Centers of New Hampshire’s drug and alcohol detox provides a safe space for an individual to overcome the worst symptoms of heroin withdrawal under the supervision of medical staff who will see to your care as you are weaned off from the physical dependence to heroin. Upon completion of Sobriety Centers of New Hampshire’s drug and alcohol detox, the next level of care would be admission to our inpatient Heroin Treatment Program.
