Heroin addiction is deemed to be one of the most addictive drugs on the planet, right next to nicotine, and is a difficult addiction to break. Heroin addiction is a very physical addiction as heroin addicts simply take heroin to avoid feeling sick (withdrawing). Many heroin addicts exhibit a combination of arrogance and immaturity and develop a “junkie pride” over the use of heroin. This means that psychologically heroin addicts need effective psychotherapy in order to reframe their belief systems and get them on the road to recovery.
Heroin Addiction Recovery
At Twin Rivers for heroin addicts we assess and prescribed a medically supervised detoxification programme. This is the simplest and most straightforward aspect of the treatment- what is more traumatic is the learning process associated with staying off drugs. This stage of treatment is addressed by a programme designed to include complementary therapies, individual counselling, group therapy, workshops, lectures and assignments.
Take the opportunity and talk to someone today if you know someone with heroin addiction.
