Professional treatment for heroin addiction can provide a safe environment to rid your body of the drug, minimize withdrawal symptoms and reduce drug cravings. It can also address co-occurring mental health issues contributing to drug use. There are various options available to treat heroin addiction, depending on the severity of your substance use.
A residential treatment program for drug abuse is the highest level of rehab available for opioid use disorders. Also referred to as inpatient treatment, the program provides individuals with 24-hour supervision and access to medical professionals in a secure environment.
Upon admission, you’ll undergo an evaluation by our treatment team to determine the level of heroin addiction treatment needed. You’ll then receive a customized treatment plan outlining services that align with your needs. Our treatment center provides a structured setting where clients attend various services throughout the day, including planned sober activities, support group meetings and behavioral therapies. Types of therapy we offer include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Experiential therapy, such as equine or art therapy
Residential treatment may be a good option if you’ve tried and failed to quit heroin use in the past or are at high risk of experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
A dual diagnosis is used to describe someone struggling with a co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, co-occurring disorders affect about 9.2 million American adults. Common co-occurring mental disorders include:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Eating disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Personality disorders
Treating co-occurring disorders simultaneously can help uncover the root cause of a heroin addiction by helping you understand how your mental health affects your substance use. Dual diagnosis treatment usually includes a combination of therapy, medication, support groups and life skills education.
