The Importance of Heroin Detox Centers for Patient Safety
Heroin is an incredibly addictive, illegal substance that has experienced a dramatic upswing in use in the last several years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as heroin use has increased, so have heroin-related deaths. Over the course of 15 years (between 2000 and 2015) the rate of overdoses has quadrupled; hitting 12,989 in 2015. Heroin addiction now qualifies as an epidemic in the United States. No demographic is safe and people of all ages and income levels have been affected; even those that have always experienced very low levels of heroin use. According to related research, most heroin addicts also abuse at least one other drug, leading patients to experience an even more difficult detox from heroin than usual.
So what does this mean? It means that heroin detox centers are more important than ever. Heroin withdrawal is very taxing on the body and mind. It can manifest physical symptoms such as sweating, nausea, abdominal cramping, insomnia, muscle aches, anxiety, and more. It is vital to the patient that they are closely monitored while experiencing detox. Heroin withdrawal can be controlled with medications, which helps patients remain as comfortable and safe as possible.
Let WhiteSands Treatment Help You Detox From Heroin
Without the help of professionals, it can be very difficult to cope with heroin detox. Heroin addiction treatment begins with a clinical assessment from our doctors and psychiatrists to determine the best course of action for each patient. We will then carefully construct a personalized recovery program designed fit your specific needs. Each individualized program takes into account your medical history, current psychical and mental needs, and goals for the future.
While in treatment, patients will learn more about their addiction. Most addicts have triggers–behaviors that “trigger” the use of drugs–that should be uncovered and explored. By learning more about behavioral triggers and other issues related to addiction, patients are able to develop appropriate coping mechanisms for the future.
