Why Our Treatment Plans Work

Heroin addiction is a complicated mix of physical, psychological, emotional and social dependencies. We understand that simply removing heroin from the equation does not address all of these areas. Rather, it leaves you with the same troubles you had before you started using.

That is why your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your specific needs. Whether you have experienced trauma, a history of depression or are dealing with chronic pain along with your addiction, you can find relief at The Treatment Center.

Your treatment plan may include any combination of the following therapies, programs and services:

Our experienced and dedicated staff has what it takes to help you through this difficult time. Heroin addiction doesn’t have to be a life sentence, and we want to help you realize that. Call us today at (877) 392-3342 to start paving your path toward recovery.

Signs of Heroin Addiction

Are you still unsure if you need treatment for heroin addiction? Heroin abuse can affect your body and your behavior in many different ways. Below are some of the most common signs of heroin addiction:

  • Lying, especially about how money is being spent
  • Increased sleeping and frequent vomiting, scratching and/or slurred speech
  • Continued drug use despite negative consequences
  • Needing to take more heroin each time to feel the same effects (i.e. tolerance)
  • Small sores or bruises on the arms, legs, neck, or between fingers or toes
  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants year round
  • Neglecting work and other responsibilities
  • Frequent muscle aches and other flu-like symptoms
  • Nodding off at strange times (e.g. while standing)

In addition to the signs listed above, the presence of paraphernalia is a red flag for heroin abuse or addiction. This includes syringes, razor blades, cut up pieces of drinking straws and burnt foil and/or spoons. 

The Complications of Heroin Abuse

Abusing heroin comes with a long list of potential consequences, including an increased risk of:

Infective endocarditis - A bacterial infection of the inner lining of the heart. Some of the surrounding structures, such as valves and blood vessels, are usually infected as well. 

Arrhythmia - An abnormal heartbeat that could limit blood flow to your brain, lungs and other organs your body relies on to stay alive.

Heart failure - Due to the multiple heart conditions caused by heroin abuse, your heart could fail.

HIV and hepatitis C - Both of these viral infections can be contracted by sharing needles and both can be life-threatening.

Choking - Heroin can cause vomiting and also suppresses your body’s ability to breathe and cough, significantly increasing your likelihood of choking.

Overdose - As tolerance builds and more heroin is used, your risk of overdose increases. Overdose is also likely because of the inconsistent potency of street heroin—one batch may barely get you high, while the next batch could be so strong that it’s lethal.

Legal issues - The never-ending need to fund your addiction can quickly lead to criminal behavior and trouble with the law.

We are here to teach you that there are ways to feel good that don't require buying harmful drugs or putting your life or future in jeopardy.
