Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin Addiction Treatment at Banyan Palm SpringsHeroin is a type of opioid used recreationally for its euphoric and pleasurable effects. Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is derived from morphine. Users will inject, smoke, or snort this drug up the nose. Because of its potency and effects, a person can become addicted after a few uses. It’s often sold on the streets or through other illegal practices. Fentanyl is often used to cut the heroin, allowing sellers to gain more profit with less product. Not only is the heroin itself dangerous, but the presence of other substances increases the possibility of overdose. As the opioid epidemic continues to worsen in the United States, families are suffering from opioid-related overdoses and deaths every day. Many individuals require a heroin addiction treatment to safely recover from heroin.
Signs and Symptoms of Heroin AbuseA heroin addiction can affect the user and their loved ones. Even short-term heroin abuse can cause severe physical and mental health problems.
Some signs of heroin abuse include:
- Needle tracks or markings
- Bruises at injection sites
- Drug paraphernalia (syringes, spoons, lighter, tubing, etc.)
- Secretive behavior
- Excessive scratching or picking at the skin
- Mood swings
- Trouble breathing
The longer an individual waits to receive heroin addiction treatment, the worse their condition will get. Continuous use of heroin can lead to symptoms including:
- Collapsed veins
- Skin infections
- High risk of getting HIV/AIDS from sharing needles
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Reproductive problems
- Menstrual problems
Heroin is a horribly dangerous drug that only leads to problems. As the person’s addiction worsens, changes in their outward appearance and internal health will become apparent. Because an addiction is a chronic disease, a person with a heroin addiction will begin to prioritize their drug use over their other responsibilities. Relationships with loved ones, jobs, and homes have often been lost as a result of substance abuse.
At Banyan Treatment Centers Palm Springs, we begin our patient’s heroin abuse treatment with a residential detox. A detox treatment allows an addict to safely wean off of drugs or alcohol while being offered medical assistance for their symptoms. Without medical supervision, withdrawing from heroin can be extremely dangerous. Our medical personnel is trained to administer assistance to our patients throughout their detoxification.
