Heroin Addiction and Treatment
A premier Heroin addiction recovery center is Chapters Capistrano in Southern California. Because no addict is affected by heroin addiction the same, we cater our treatment programs to each client. Chapters’ addiction experts develop a specialized approach for each client to guarantee a successful recovery.
Heroin, or diamorphine, is made from the opium poppy, a painkiller synthesized from morphine. Although heroin in prescribed form can be used as an effective analgesic, the drug is most often used recreationally. Typically injected, heroin generates a euphoric, intense rush, making it highly addictive. Addicts can quickly develop a tolerance, and therefore increased amounts are needed for the same initial effect.
Effects of Heroin Abuse
An abuser’s emotional health, as well as relationships with family and friends, and professionally, can greatly suffer. In terms of health, the risks of prolonged use includes poisoning from “cut” heroin, contracting hepatitis C and HIV, and physical dependence due to non-sterile needles and syringes. Overdosing is the ultimate risk.
Heroin Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful
At Chapters Capistrano, our heroin rehab program team knows many addicts do not seek rehabilitation due to the fear of withdrawal. Though withdrawal can be uncomfortable, we are committed to making your transition back into a drug-free life less painful. We use drug-specific detoxification which is both traditional and safest. Our medical team prescribes clients mild prescription medication. Such medication, given until the body is stabilized, abates the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms.
