How Can I Overcome Heroin Addiction For The Long-term?

If you are struggling with heroin addiction, you understand firsthand just how incredibly difficult it can be to overcome dependence. Withdrawal symptoms can be relentless and painful, and the risk of relapse can be high.

At Serenity at Summit, we believe that to successfully break free from the grips of addiction, an individualized heroin addiction treatment program is absolutely essential.

It’s simply a fact that heroin is a highly addictive drug that has some very dangerous side effects including heart problems, infectious disease spread by shared needles, chronic pneumonia, bacterial infections, liver disease, seizures, and even death. For this reason, getting into an effective treatment program isn’t just a good idea; it could be the difference between life and death.

Overcoming Withdrawal

One of the primary reasons why heroin addiction is so difficult to treat is because of the challenges of withdrawal. The detox process can be overwhelming and debilitating, often requiring medical intervention. Curtailing heroin can lead to serious complications. This is why detoxification shouldn’t be attempted on your own.

The first step in successful recovery from heroin addiction is detoxing in an environment that is supervised by medical and holistic professionals. In Summit Behavioral Health’s detox program, you receive medical supervision and the support of a highly experienced team of addiction experts to minimize withdrawal symptoms and to prepare you for successful outpatient drug addiction treatment.

Upon entering detox, we carefully evaluate your history, psychological status, and addiction to create a program that gives you the best chance for successful recovery. To help you during this early stage of treatment and as you progress in your continued recovery, you receive a variety of highly beneficial tools to support you on your journey. These include:

  • Individual, Group, and Family Therapy
  • Holistic Treatment
  • Education Programs to Learn Coping Techniques
  • Ongoing Support

After detox, you will enter ongoing outpatient treatment where you can learn coping mechanisms to alleviate your heroin cravings and explore strategies for successfully managing your new life free from addiction.
