Heroin Use Disorder

Understanding Heroin Addiction

Heroin detoxification is known for being one of the most challenging parts of any journey to sobriety. Due to the severe side effects and intense cravings, the withdrawal process can be challenging for the body, mind, and soul. However, with the right support and a compassionate team of professionals, you can free yourself from heroin abuse… for good.

Enlight Treatment Center provides professional care and detox for those navigating substance abuse challenges, including heroin addiction. Our team of medical and mental health professionals is here to guide you on a journey through the detox process and in recovery that lasts. From our entire team at Enlight, we are grateful that you are here and look forward to taking this journey to sobriety, together.

Due to its low cost, highly addictive nature, and risk of overdose, heroin is an incredibly dangerous drug that takes countless lives each year. Heroin, like other opioids, activates the reward centers in our brain which releases endorphins and leads to temporary feelings of pleasure.

When used for long periods of time, the body builds up a physical dependence on the opioid, meaning more of the same substance is needed in order to achieve the same high. Note that many heroin users started out with a legitimate prescription for opioids to manage pain, and turned to heroin as a cheap alternative to their opioid addiction. If you or a loved one has been addicted to heroin or other forms of opioids, it is important to seek professional substance abuse treatment right away.

Navigating Addiction Recovery

Is a Heroin Detox Program Necessary?

Heroin abuse comes with severe withdrawal symptoms that can be uncomfortable, at best, and deadly at worst. Because of this, a professional medical detox is highly recommended in order to help manage uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse.

At Enlight Treatment Center, our detoxification programs are prepared to help you navigate the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms associated with heroin detox. Our team of professionals is equipped to handle urges that may arise, provide medical assistance when necessary, and relieve withdrawal symptoms so you can detox in the safest and most effective way possible. For many individuals going through opioid withdrawal, a successful detox is crucial for long-term sobriety and recovery.

The Effects of Heroin Detox

Heroin Withdrawal Symptoms

Heroin detox often comes with both physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms that increase an individual’s risk of relapse. Those with a heroin addiction may experience the following during the detox process:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Intense Cravings
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Muscle spasms
  • And more

If you or a loved one is working to quit heroin and experiences any of these withdrawal symptoms, seek the guidance of a heroin detox center, such as Enlight Treatment Center, immediately. Professional support could be the difference between a successful and deadly detox.
