TREATING HEROIN ADDICTION
Heroin withdrawal is marked by severe pain, restlessness, insomnia and vomiting. These symptoms can set in as soon as one or two hours after a high wears off, contributing to the drug’s high risk for addiction. Treating heroin addiction typically requires a medical detox period during which you are weaned off the drug with controlled doses of prescription opioids. Medical detox allows you to flush the drug from your system while minimizing the extreme discomforts of withdrawal. However, it is important to seek medically-assisted detox at a recovery facility that, like The Springboard Center, is equipped to provide these services.
Additionally, the CDC estimates that as many as nine out of ten heroin users also abuse other substances. Co-occurring addictions are best treated with a specialized approach to ensure recovery from addiction to all substances rather than just one. The Springboard Center in Midland, TX also provides experienced care for clients with multiple addictions.
