Heroin is an extremely powerful substance that can cause addiction when it is abused. This highly potent substance can negatively affect many different areas of one’s life, as it is widely considered one of the most powerful forms of chemical dependency.

Knowing how much danger heroin abuse can have in one’s life, treatment is almost always necessary to end this form of addiction. Those who do not obtain professional treatment can experience a continuation of heroin addiction that can lead to severe mental and physical health symptoms. Knowing how upsetting these outcomes can be, it is imperative to consider professional treatment that offers therapeutic treatment modalities and detoxification (or detox).

Detox is a form of treatment that can help rid the body of toxic substances in a setting where the patient can be supervised and cared for appropriately. This specific service has been known to lay the foundation for a successful recovery for those who partake in it.

Withdrawal

What happens during heroin withdrawal

Withdrawing from heroin can be extremely painful. If you have been abusing heroin for a long time and your body is dependent on it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms that can be highly distressing when you stop your use.

Heroin withdrawal can lead to severe bodily aches and pain, powerful cravings, and feeling physically sick. Because these symptoms can be so powerful and consistent, it can be easy for you to go right back to the use of heroin to alleviate the pain you are feeling. However, if you participate in detox, not only will you have a much less painful withdrawal, but you can also be provided with the skills needed to obtain lasting recovery.

Benefits

Long-term benefits of heroin detox for addiction

When you do not receive treatment for a heroin addiction, or if you do not engage in detox, you can have less than satisfactory results. If you are physically dependent on heroin, you can suffer one or more relapses and find that you are unable to stop your addiction on your own. However, if you partake in detox at a treatment center, you can prevent this dangerous cycle of abuse from continuing.

Participating in a detox program allows you to achieve the health and wellbeing needed to understand why your addiction got to the level it did in the first place. With these benefits, you can engage yourself fully in programming, helping you to establish the skills and confidence needed to keep from abusing heroin or other opioids in the future.

If you are ready to engage in detox and turn your life around for the better, reach out to us here at Red River Hospital. We can help you.
