Opioid Addict Treatment Rehab
Heroin Addiction

500,000 Americans

are addicted to heroin each year

The epidemic of heroin overdoses in the 1990s seemed like they might permanently snuff out addiction to this dangerous opioid. After all, with heroin so visibly linked to thousands of deaths, what possible justification could people turn to for heroin addiction? The answer is simple: heroin addiction is not something anyone willingly chooses. It’s a disease—and a life-threatening one at that. Heroin changes your body and your brain. And then it changes—and possibly claims—your life.

Almost 13,000 people

die from heroin annually

The nation is in the grips of an opioid addiction epidemic. Half a million Americans are addicted to heroin each year, and the drug kills almost 13,000 people annually. It doesn’t have to be this way. No matter how bad things seem, it’s possible to recover from heroin addiction. Our West Palm Beach heroin addiction treatment center offers treatment that can help you achieve sobriety and help you put your life back together.

Heroin
Addiction:
Why Can’t I
Just Stop?

Heroin<br /> Addiction:<br /> Why Can’t I<br /> <strong> Just Stop?</strong>

The media is hard on heroin addicts, presenting them as selfish people throwing their lives and relationships away for a worthless drug. This isn’t true. Heroin addiction changes the brain and the body, such that you feel like you need heroin to survive. This makes you treat heroin-like food or water—necessary, and something you must have. It’s not your fault you feel this way. Heroin changes your brain. And the longer you use, the more dramatic the changes become.

There’s another problem with heroin addiction, too: heroin addiction destroys lives. And many people use heroin to escape the pain of their daily lives. So as life gets worse due to heroin addiction, people continue using heroin as a way to avoid the pain of the consequences of heroin use. It’s a vicious cycle.

The Lies
Heroin
Addiction

Tells

You can’t stop anytime you want. Otherwise, you would have already stopped. Heroin addiction often comes with a significant dose of denial. You see heroin as the only way to feel happy or believe that you could stop if you wanted to. When you try to stop, withdrawal hits you like a ton of bricks, convincing you that you literally cannot survive without heroin. It’s this cycle that makes it so difficult for heroin addicts to quit.

Don’t let heroin lie to you. You can quit. The first step is the detox process. As you detox, your body violently resists the withdrawal of heroin. You’ll experience depression, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, sleeplessness, and potentially other symptoms. In some cases, you may even become dehydrated or severely ill. Supervised detox at a skilled and qualified heroin detox facility is the key to safely getting through detox. Once you’ve fully detoxed, the cravings will be much less severe.

How is Heroin
Addiction Treated?

Heroin addiction is a complex disease involving mind, body, your environment, your finances, and much more. We work to provide you with the comprehensive support you need. Therapy is a key form of support on the journey to recovery. Through therapy, you’ll gain an understanding of how and why you became an addict, and begin cultivating coping skills that can help you resist the temptation to use.

Some other forms of support that can help you get sober include:

Heroin Addiction
Detox

Detox is the first step on your recovery journey. However, many let the fear of withdrawal hold them back. By heading to a professional detox center, you can go through detox safely.

Our West Palm Beach detox center offers nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide/brain restoration plus (NAD/BR+). NAD is a coenzyme vital for most reactions in the body’s cells. Without it, the brain and body can’t correctly function. And addicts tend to have lower than average levels of NAD. By helping to restore NAD levels, we can help restore your brain to its normal, healthy state. This makes the recovery journey a more tangible, and can even reduce some of the side effects so prevalent in the early days of heroin detox.

Understanding
the Heroin
Addiction
Recovery Journey

Addiction is a disease you’ll have to fight for the rest of your life. You’ll need to be mindful of how potentially addictive substances might affect you. That doesn’t mean you have to give up your life. With each passing day, things get a bit easier. Eventually, you’ll reach a point where cravings don’t occur as often and life is more manageable.

The key is finding a program that works for you, by supporting your family and values and listening to your needs. We understand that everyone’s journey has to be different. We’re here to aid you on your path to sobriety and to support you as you take this long but rewarding walk.

Sobriety will never be easier than it is today. Call us now if you’re ready for help.
