Heroin Addiction Treatment Q & A

Why might I need heroin addiction treatment?

You might need heroin addiction treatment if your use of the drug is affecting your health and causing you problems. Heroin is a particularly potent opiate drug that has a powerful effect on your brain. It influences the production of chemicals like dopamine and endorphins in your brain that make you feel good.

While healthy levels of these chemicals are important for normal functioning, when you take heroin, it raises the levels abnormally high. This creates a link in your brain between the pleasurable feelings and your use of the drug, making it extremely difficult to quit.

What makes things worse is that your body develops a tolerance to heroin over time, which means you have to take more to get any effect. Eventually, you have to use heroin just to function. The increase in usage also heightens your risk of an overdose, which could be fatal.

What are the signs that I need heroin addiction treatment?

Signs that you’re in need of heroin addiction treatment include:

  • Inability to cut down or quit
  • Having persistent cravings
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms
  • Need bigger doses to get high
  • Starting to inject the drug

If you continue to use heroin despite worsening problems in your life caused by your drug use, that’s a clear sign you need help.

What does heroin addiction treatment involve?

The Corebella Health & Wellness team specializes in treating people with drug misuse disorders like heroin addiction. You work with an experienced addiction therapist as well as counselors and doctors to address all the problems related to your disorder.

Heroin addiction is one of the most challenging because it results in both physical and psychological changes. Withdrawal from heroin can cause issues like:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Agitation
  • Overwhelming cravings

Withdrawal can feel like a severe attack of the flu and might last a week or so. However, at Corebella Health & Wellness, the team uses medications like buprenorphine (Suboxone® and Sublocade®) to reduce the side effects of withdrawal.

In addition to medication for your withdrawal, Corebella Health & Wellness offers individual and group talk therapies. These include psychotherapy for drug abuse recovery, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).

These treatments help you address underlying issues that could have contributed to your heroin addiction problem. You also learn strategies that help you manage your addiction and share your experiences with people who understand what it’s like to live with heroin addiction.
