How Common is Heroin Addiction with Other Substances?

Heroin addiction can quickly spiral out of control, and before you know it, you are living a dangerous lifestyle, one that hinders your ability to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Each dose you take is a gamble, especially since the introduction of fentanyl. Being 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine, when fentanyl is added to heroin and the user is unaware, the risk of an overdose dramatically increases. To learn more about the dangers of fentanyl, read our blog post here.

That is why it’s imperative that you recognize the development of heroin addiction. Seeking treatment as soon as possible could mean the difference between life and death.

How to Treat Heroin Addiction

There are numerous options for heroin rehabilitation. Clinical studies have helped treatment centers like ours develop treatment plans that increase a client’s chance of staying sober for the long-term.

To treat heroin, you must first successfully complete the detoxification process. Due to the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms associated with heroin addiction, it is highly recommended that you seek a medically-supported detox program. Once you successfully detox your body, you will then begin to truly heal both mentally and physically.

After detox at Pinnacle, you’ll gain access to behavioral and motivation therapies, family therapy, group therapy, nutritional and exercise programs, experiential therapy, and more. We offer many evidence-based treatment options so that you get the most out of your experience. Over time, we will adjust your treatment plan to help you achieve your ongoing goals. For example, once you make progress in your individual therapy sessions, you may want to focus on family therapy or nutritional therapy.
