Heroin: An Epidemic

Play Video

Like other opioids, heroin manipulates the pleasure portion of your brain. It releases floods of dopamine and endorphins, which remove pain, causing intense euphoria and a temporary sense of well-being.

As regular heroin use continues, you start to develop a physical tolerance to the drug. You require more and more of it to reach the same level of intensity.

At the same time, your body begins to believe it doesn’t need to produce its own dopamine, and so it slows down production and eventually stops. Real chemical dependency takes root, leading to a seemingly hopeless situation.

Unlike prescription drugs, street heroin doesn’t come in regulated strengths and doses. You have no idea what it’s been cut with, which could be anything from baby powder to cleaning detergent. You risk overdose– and death. Please don’t play these games with your life.

The first step is diagnosis.

Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin addiction treatment is the best option for freeing yourself from the grip of a heroin addiction. There are many to help reverse your behavior, partially or fully restore your brain’s normal functions, replenish your dignity–and save your life.

Research agrees that, for some, a combination of behavioral and pharmacological treatments provide the most effective approach to heroin withdrawal.

Stage 1: Detox

Heroin treatment centers use medications to ease them–and lessen the resulting cravings. These medications work through the same opioid receptors in the brain that heroin does, but they are safer, making treatment possible. Effective medications include: Methadone, Buprenorphine, Naltrexone.

Stage 2: Rehab

Heroin addiction treatment is the best option for freeing yourself from the grip of a heroin addiction. There are many to help reverse your behavior, partially or fully restore your brain’s normal functions, replenish your dignity–and save your life.

Research agrees that, for some, a combination of behavioral and pharmacological treatments provide the most effective approach to heroin withdrawal.

Stage 3: Maintenance

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has found many effective behavioral treatments for heroin addiction that are available in both inpatient and outpatient heroin rehab environments. Two that are highly-recommended are contingency management 

Stage 1: Detox

Depending on your degree of addiction, medically supervised detoxification may be needed in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably. Which option is best for you depends on how much alcohol you’ve been drinking, how long you’ve had a problem with alcohol, and any other health issues that you may have.

Stage 2: Rehab

Attaining sobriety, and giving recovering addicts the skills needed to remain sober, often involves medication and counseling. This treatment step can be done inpatient or outpatient. Both are equally effective.

Stage 3: Maintenance

The success of this step requires that the alcohol addict be self-motivated. This requires support, and often includes attending 12-step support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and finding a sponsor.

A Word About 12-Step Support Groups

12-step support groups for after-treatment can be very effective for your sober recovery. Because they are composed entirely of recovering addicts, you’ll find the honesty, courage, and support you need to continue in your rehabilitation. Also, these groups are free and universally available.
