Heroin Treatment at Ocean Hills Recovery – It’s Time For A Change.
Heroin abuse has become representative of all the most challenging aspects of addiction. Its reputation as a seemingly insurmountable foe in the battle for sobriety serves as a testament to the overwhelming power of its grasp. Users are often undeterred by the risks of gangrene, HIV, hepatitis, stroke, and even death. Nonetheless, the dire consequences of addiction make heroin treatment absolutely necessary. With guidance, understanding, and a healing environment, you can finally free yourself from the shackles of dependency.
Understanding the Strangle Hold Of Heroin Addiction
Heroin exerts a direct effect on the way the brain and body perceive pleasure and pain. By affecting opiate receptors in the brain, it rapidly triggers a dangerous cycle of intense pleasure followed by extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Users find themselves obsessively chasing feelings of euphoria and then desperately avoiding the discomfort of withdrawal. Fear of becoming “junk sick,” a reference to mental and physical symptoms suffered by addicts in withdrawal, enslaves heroin users and often prevents them from seeking treatment.
If you have found yourself ensnared in this cycle, it’s time to get help from people who possess the experience needed to understand your situation, and the tools necessary to transition into recovery more gently.
A Three-Fold Path To Recovery
Overcoming dependency requires a multi-dimensional approach to heroin drug treatment. First, you’ll need both physical and psychological assistance as your body goes through the detoxification process. Next, every person needs expert support in the form of counseling or therapy as they rebuild their inner strength and sense of self. Understanding where your addiction came from, and developing a strategy to avoid old triggers is paramount to your continued success. Finally, a comprehensive aftercare program is pivotal in helping you to integrate the changes you make into a new life.
At Ocean Hills Recovery, we understand these needs and offer a fully realized program to help you through every phase of your recovery. We focus on more than leaving heroin behind; we help you to reconstruct your life as you heal your body. Our collaborative care program combines the proven methods of 12 Step Recovery with therapies that address the biological, psychological, and social aspects of healing. At Ocean Hills Recovery, we invite you to participate in a new model of healing, one that restores your inner self and your body within a supportive community of sobriety.
