Treating heroin addiction usually involves lifestyle changes, support groups, short-term medication, and therapy. We are associated with outpatient and inpatient treatment centers that provide these programs. Heroin detox is usually the initial step in addiction treatment; we require a 72-hour detox prior to entry. Depending on your unique situation, some should detox with a group of experts and/or in a medical setting.
Sometimes heroin withdrawal lasts for several weeks and can be painful. We find that tackling underlying behaviors that may be at the root of the addiction is key.
