The Truth About Heroin Detox

Anyone who has experienced heroin withdrawal never wants to endure it again. With a medication assisted heroin detox you can avoid the majority of the physical withdrawal side effects, however. Psychological effects are also addressed in a top tier inpatient heroin detox, such as the programs we offer at TruHealing Centers. The truth about heroin detox is that it makes entering recovery from heroin addiction a lot easier, but it’s only the beginning of the journey. It’s critical to understand recovery as a lifestyle rather than a process or procedure with a beginning and end. Detox from heroin is very effective at getting a person sober. But what that person does after their detox from heroin is what determines if they stay heroin-free and for how long.

TruHealing Centers: A Trusted Partner

TruHealing Centers became of the country’s most trusted healthcare providers by delivering high quality evidence-based addiction treatment. Evidence based treatment focuses on data and outcomes. Clinical research shows that clients who stay in heroin addiction treatment for several weeks beyond the detox phase are more likely to remain drug free. Heroin addiction is complex. Heroin detox addresses the most acute biological components in the short term, which is critical if the person is to recover. It manages withdrawal symptoms and restores the person to equilibrium. Getting past the initial stages when withdrawal symptoms would be most intense is essential. This is the most difficult time for most people to hold on and avert relapse. The value of a medical detox from heroin is unquestionable.


Advantages of Heroin Detox at TruHealing Centers:

  • The safety and security of 24-hour detox nurses on duty for observation.
  • Medications to ensure clients are able to sleep and rest comfortably.
  • Counseling and therapy are available as soon as client is willing and ready.
  • Careful detox protocol prevents most withdrawal symptoms before they can occur.
  • Additional addiction treatment is available at TruHealing Centers for continuity of care.

Solving the Problem of Heroin Addiction

If a person expects to adopt a recovery lifestyle to stay free of heroin, then a medical heroin detox is the logical place to begin. No one deserves to suffer, regardless of decisions they may have made while in addiction. There is no reward for suffering through withdrawal and certainly no therapeutic value in going “cold turkey”. TruHealing Centers recommends a medical detox off of heroin at a top tier opiate detox like TruHealing Atlanta. Not only for comfort and safety, but because it is integral to the evidence-based treatment approach for heroin addiction. Simply put, we know a person’s chances of staying sober are better if they receive an inpatient medical detox and assessment. Even if a person refuses to or cannot commit to a longer term inpatient or partial hospitalization program for heroin, the detox followed by outpatient and MAT improves their chances.

Benefit From Our Experience

TruHealing Centers has considerable experience in detoxing people off of heroin at our facilities. For the sake of safety as well as comfort, a medically supervised detox is the best course of action. Clients in our heroin detox programs enjoy from 24-hour a day medical supervision, every day. Each client benefits from our carefully devised opiate detox protocol, Clinical staff are on hand to respond to any development, first hand. A detox nurse can adjust, add or subtract medications to help you get restful sleep or alleviate pain or anxiety. There is no simple way to replicate the carefully developed opiate detox protocols we us at TruHealing Centers at home. At home detoxes rarely work to keep a person sober for long and no one is looking for temporary recovery.
