How to Quit Using Heroin

Heroin is one of the most powerful and addictive drugs on the planet. Unfortunately, these qualities make quitting on your own almost impossible. That is why a medically supervised heroin detox is necessary to remove heroin from your system safely and effectively. 

After this process, your body will no longer be physically dependent upon the drug. However, heroin addiction treatment will be necessary in order to address the psychological dependence that remains and to increase your chances of long-term recovery.

Withdrawing from Heroin on Your Own

When your body and mind become dependent upon heroin, many changes take place. Your brain’s reward center becomes accustomed to feelings of extreme pleasure, and your body becomes accustomed to numbness, warmth and a lack of tension. 

Abruptly quitting the drug or quitting without medical supervision often results in severe withdrawal symptoms. Listed below are some of the most common mild to severe heroin withdrawal symptoms:

• Feelings of depression, anxiety, and irritability

• Nausea and/or vomiting

• Strong cravings for more heroin 

• Diarrhea

• Increased sensitivity to pain

• Fever

• Restlessness and insomnia

• Excessive sweating

• Runny nose 

Trying to detox from heroin on your own can seem impossible because of these withdrawal symptoms. At The Treatment Center though, you can rest assured that our trained medical staff will do everything in their power to help you detox from heroin addiction safely and comfortably.

Are you ready to get clean? Call us at (877) 392-3342 or chat with us online, and we will gladly assist you. Our admissions counselors are here for you 24/7/365.

What Should I Expect During Detox?

Once you have been approved for treatment and make it safely to our facility, our addiction specialists will assess your current needs. Your opiate detox plan will be unique to you, taking into consideration how much heroin you use and how long you have been using it.

Board-certified doctors will help you detoxify from heroin without the intensity and discomfort of quitting “cold turkey.” This is achieved by gradually weaning you off of opiates instead of taking you off of them abruptly. 

Our medical staff will monitor your health and provide you with around-the-clock care for the entire duration of your heroin detox. You will never be left alone or shown “tough love”. At The Treatment Center, we will treat you with respect and compassion.

The Next Step

Although successfully completing an opiate detox is a step in the right direction, recovery doesn’t end there. Once your body no longer requires heroin to function, you will need to get to the root of your herion addiction with individualized treatment. 

At The Treatment Center, comprehensive treatment plans are available to you. These plans address social, emotional, physical and legal concerns related to your heroin addiction. You will learn new skills to take with you when you leave our heroin rehab center.
