Heroin Treatment & Recovery Center
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 81,000 dug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period. Heroin remains largely at the top of that list for abused drugs and deaths. Though other drugs are rising in popularity, Heroin remains a top pick among drug users.
At Hope Rising Detox and Rehab we do not want to see any more people added to this growing list of death statistics. We are here to help. We are here to help navigate you or a loved one through detoxing from Heroin in a safe, loving environment. Through medicated assisted treatment, our team of doctors, nurses and staff are here to help.
Heroin is highly addictive and widely available to those who know how to find it. As people use Heroin they get a “high” or a “rush” and a feeling of euphoria. This euphoria feeling creates a sensation for the body and brain to want more. Over a short time, those who use Heroin find that they long for it daily and even hourly in some cases. Heroin users build up a tolerance for the drug therefore needing a higher and higher dose to get the desired effects. As the doses and frequency of doses rises, so does the body’s “need” for more. Over time, users find they can no longer stop using without help or going through sometimes painful and even deadly withdrawals.
How do you know you have a problem and need help? Those who are addicted to heroin may or may not realize they need help. Some signs to watch for to determine if you or a loved one may be addicted to Heroin include some of the following:
- Loss of job due to use
- Loss of family or friend relationships
- Been arrested
- Been told by others you have a problem
- Lying to others or hiding the use of heroin
- Found that you can not stop using without feeling withdrawal symptoms
- Find yourself thinking about using and not on the task at hand
- Planning your day or week around using
- A Heroin detox is achieved through a process. Our doctors meet with each of our clients one on one to get a thorough history of use, physical exam, medical history, tox screening and any other medically needed information to help make the detox or recovery safe.
- Once safely admitted to our program, our doctors use their special training and experience to prescribe medication to ease, or in some cases, eliminate the withdrawal symptoms. This withdrawal process can last 4-10 days.
- During the withdrawal or detox time period, our staff are on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you and meet all of your needs, all while being monitored by our doctors. Our goal is to get you on the road to recovery quickly and safely.
