Heroin Detox Centers

The rise is then number of people abusing heroin is both alarming and tragic. Research suggests that the rise in prescription opiate abuse is related to the increased number of men and women abusing heroin. Many of us now are familiar with the prescription pill abuse epidemic happening across the country. It is not unusual for someone who has developed an addiction to prescription opiates to use heroin if they are unable to get more prescription opiates.

For men and women abusing heroin, they risk not only overdosing, but a number of other potentially life threatening consequences. Intravenous drug users are more likely to contract blood borne illnesses, including Hep C and HIV. There is also growing concern over intravenous drug users suffering from deadly bacterial infections acquired by using unclean needles. The lifestyle that many addicts lead puts them at high risk and they are more likely to suffer from extreme depression.

How Heroin Detox Centers Can Help

Detoxing off of heroin without medical assistance can be dangerous. The physical and psychological effects of heroin withdrawal are substantial and can include:

  • Nausea
  • Muscle aches
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Cold Chills
  • Runny nose
  • Cramps
  • Intense drug cravings

Without assistance, most addicts are unable to make it through the detox process without picking back up. The idea of kicking “cold turkey” scares many addicts away from the idea of sobriety. Heroin detox centers specialize in opiate detox and, depending on the facility, can prescribed detox medications such as Subutex, Suboxone or Methadone to ease withdrawal symptoms and keep you comfortable. Those that receive a medically supervised detox are much more likely to recover than those that attempt to do it on their own. Discharge planners can help you decide on an aftercare plan to help you remain on track with your recovery.

Prescription pill addiction is rapidly on the rise. It seemed almost as if overnight pain management clinics, or “pill mills” as they are often called, began popping up everywhere. Between the lack of accountability being demanded from the owners and operators of these places and absence of a way to track those who were visiting these clinics, painkiller abuse quickly became a deadly epidemic.
