Heroin Addiction Treatment
Once you become addicted, can you ever become cured?
Those who are addicted to heroin and have been able to stop through an active participation in a plan of recovery consider themselves to be recovering. This means that while they do not currently drink or use drugs they will always be susceptible to heroin and will need to make significant lifestyle changes in order to continue to reinforce their new lifestyle. Addiction has such a profound effect on the individual that even when they no longer use, their previous experiences have left a lasting impact on the way they view themselves and the world around them. Addicts don’t consider themselves to be cured, but they do consider themselves to be recovering and “no longer active” in heroin use.
Rosecrance can help
At Rosecrance, we have developed an evidence-based, 12 Step-based program that incorporates clinical, medical, educational and experiential therapies into a comprehensive individualized treatment plan.
Medically Assisted Treatment
- Enables patients to engage and focus on treatment as their physical needs related to opiate withdrawal and craving are being met
- Reduces high frequency of treatment disengagement
- Allows for individualized tapering of medications and customization of treatment
Suboxone Enhances Treatment
Rosecrance’s Medically Assisted Recovery Clinic enables patients to continue the use of Suboxone throughout their outpatient treatment experience. Suboxone improves treatment engagement through its ability to reduce anxiety and cravings. It acts as an opiate blocker and addresses pain issues frequently not addressed in treatment.
Your length of stay in any treatment program is dependent on your progress and accomplishment of treatment goals — as determined by you, your counselor and, when appropriate, your family.
We know that talking about a substance problem involving you or a loved one can feel overwhelming. At Rosecrance, we want to make the first step as simple as possible. It begins with a phone call.
