Holistic Heroin Treatment Center. If you’re here, you probably already know this: heroin has a way of taking over your life.
An extremely physically addictive drug, heroin builds tolerance quickly. As such, once you form a physical dependence, trying to stop can result in very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. And that inability to quit using, even when you desperately want to, can feel defeating and hopeless.
“It’s like I just lost control,” says former Sanctuary client Roberta about her addiction. “I wasn’t enjoying life anymore. I had all this wonderful opportunity in front of me, and yet I was killing myself very slowly with drugs.”
What Is Opiate or Heroin Addiction?
Heroin is an extremely addictive opiate. This particular opioid is synthesized from morphine, a substance naturally derived from poppy plants.
An extremely physically addictive drug, heroin builds tolerance quickly. That means it takes more and more opiates to achieve the desired high you once felt. As such, once you form a physical dependence, trying to stop can result in very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. And that inability to quit using, even when you desperately want to, can feel defeating and hopeless.
Opiates are an especially insidious drug. Once you’re physically dependent and try to stop abruptly, the severe side effects of withdrawal can make quitting feel so intolerable that you’d rather use heroin than face them. Opiate withdrawal symptoms include chills, intense aches, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. A professional opioid treatment center, like The Sanctuary, can help you after detoxification and ensure this physically, emotionally and psychologically draining process is done and you are on the road to recovery.
How to Overcome Heroin Addiction
Most opiate rehabilitation programs have a straightforward treatment approach that barely scratches the surface of heroin addiction’s true impact. This disease has far-reaching repercussions on every area of your life. That’s why, at The Sanctuary, we believe opiate addiction help must address the whole person.
Holistic treatment for heroin addiction is not your typical 12-Step program. Instead, our unique approach blends numerous treatment modalities — science-backed therapies, complementary treatments, ancient wisdom techniques and more. We then curate these to create a truly personalized heroin addiction program based on your background, level of addiction and recovery goals. The result — true transformation from the inside out.
Heroin Addiction Relapse Prevention
All addictions can relapse, and heroin is no exception. Addiction is a complicated web to untangle, and it’s totally understandable if that takes more than one try. So it’s no surprise that studies show the success rate of AA to be between five and 10 percent, with 90 percent of attendees dropping out within the first 90 days.
At The Sanctuary’s Holistic Heroin Treatment Center, we help our clients prevent relapse by:
- Addressing causes of heroin addiction that mainstream rehab programs tend to ignore
- Diving deeper into the recovery process via a complete, integrated healing journey
- Helping you create a solid relapse prevention plan, starting in your first days of treatment
- Providing 60 days of Transition Wellness Coaching, including individual counseling, group sessions, continued education, and resource support on a weekly basis
