Heroin is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and potent substances of abuse in the world. The abuse of this substance can quickly lead to the development of addiction, and in-turn, possibly cause a number of negative life circumstances, including overdose and death.

Knowing how damaging an addiction to heroin can be, treatment is almost always needed in order to help an individual addicted to this substance obtain recovery. If you are addicted to heroin and do not receive appropriate, effective care, the effects that can occur when the addiction continues can include irreversible damage to your physical and mental health. The many risks associated with heroin addiction make it necessary to consider treatment that not only includes therapeutic treatment, but also detox services. Detox is a specific form of care that helps clear your body of dangerous substances at the beginning of recovery.

What to Expect

What to expect during detox from heroin

Heroin withdrawal is said to be one of the most painful types of drug withdrawal. If you have been abusing heroin to the point where your body needs it in order to function, withdrawal symptoms are more than likely to present themselves when you stop your use.

Withdrawing from heroin can cause you to experience powerful cravings, bodily aches and pains, and feelings of illness. Because these symptoms can be highly distressing, it can be easy to relapse and start using again. However, if you participate in detox at a professional treatment center, not only can you be made comfortable, but you can also prepare yourself to achieve success in your next steps towards recovery.

Long-term benefits of benzo detox at MeadowWood in New Castle, DE

If you do not get treatment for an addiction to heroin, or if you get treatment but do not receive detox, the results can be less than pleasing. If you are physically dependent on heroin, you can experience one or more relapses, which can keep you from ending your addiction to heroin for good. However, if you do receive detox, there is a greater chance that you will develop both the skills and the confidence needed to keep from abusing heroin in the future.

Participating in a detox program can allow you to maintain good health and peace of mind so that you can begin to understand how and why your addiction to heroin developed. With these benefits, you can participate in the programming provided, which can allow you to begin building a happy, healthy life.

What Past Clients Say

I came here during the worst time of my life. I had so much anxiety coming in but the girls in the admissions area were so pleasant and answered all my questions. The hospital was clean and staff were friendly and helpful on the unit. The medicine they gave me helped so much, and I finally feel like myself again. If you’re willing to participate and go to all the groups, you will get something out of the program. I went right from inpatient to their day program for a week afterwards, and that helped me stay focused too.
