What can you expect from heroin detox?
Heroin Detox: the first step
Detoxification means clearing the toxins from your body, literally and figuratively in the case of heroin detox. As you have been using heroin, your body is used to the chemicals in heroin being in your bloodstream. The only way to clear these toxins from your body is being completely stopping your heroin intake. This comes with withdrawal symptoms, that can be quite severe. Depending on the severity of the addiction of the patient, the withdrawal symptoms can vary from mild, moderate to severe. Mild symptoms consist of nausea, abdominal cramps or muscle and bone aches. The more moderate symptoms are vomiting, diarrhoea and fatigue. For those that have been using Heroin for a prolonged period of time, serious withdrawal symptoms like tremors, anxiety, hypertension and a rapid heart rate might happen.
This is the reason why we at Rehab Recovery, work closely with professionals who know what to do in the worst possible cases of withdrawal symptoms. Doing a heroin detox at home could be life-threatening. We would advise you to pick a professional service to help you instead.
Post-Detox: Giving you the tools to succeed in keeping yourself clean
Once you feel the wave of withdrawal symptoms slowly fading, you should start thinking towards post-detox, which mostly consists of therapy, to make you feel better equipped to deal with issues in the future. The reason for heroin abuse often differs for every patient, but it is mostly a psychological issue. Some people started using heroin to deal with an underlying mental health issue, whilst some others use heroin as a tool to deal with situations that cause stress. These situations are called triggers, and understanding your triggers will help you identify situations where you might use heroin to cope.
At Rehab Recovery, we try to help you let the past be, and embark on a journey to a healthier future.
