When you make the decision to seek out help for addiction at a drug addiction rehab center, you’re empowering yourself to change. It is a big, brave move and one that will alter your future. It’s not easy to do, though. Many men and women have to come to realize that treatment for heroin addiction needs to come from a professional if you want to be successful in the long term. At Crestview Recovery, we give you all of the tools to make that possible.
Drug addiction is lonely, desolate, and dangerous when left untreated. People who depend on heroin can sometimes avoid an overdose for a few months (or even years), but heroin’s effects will eventually take their toll. The heroin addiction rehab center at Crestview Recovery provides the tools people need in order to stop living for heroin and start living for themselves. Many users find themselves searching for heroin after becoming dependent on doctor-prescribed pain medication (fentanyl and OxyContin are a few examples) because heroin is less expensive than prescribed opioids. Heroin addiction rehab is the best option for overcoming addiction.
Heroin Addiction Treatment
If you are thinking about getting treatment for heroin addiction, your first step is to seek out a specialized holistic drug rehab center designed to treat your condition. Because of how intense and complex this type of addiction is, this level of support is often best. Here’s how we handle your care here.
A Full Assessment
When you reach out to us for treatment for heroin addiction, you will work with our team through an assessment process. We want to ensure you are getting the right type of care for your individual needs. We then want to help you to understand what else is present, such as the extent of any type of mental health disorder. If you have past trauma or depression, or any other mental health disorder, you may benefit from dual diagnosis therapy. This is a way of addressing both of these concerns at one time.
Choosing the Plan for You
The next step in your treatment for heroin addiction is to outline the very specific type of structure right for your needs. We base these decisions on the assessment. For most of our clients, this includes options such as:
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) for heroin addiction is an organized set of treatments and activities that help individuals with a substance use disorder to manage their addiction in an outpatient setting. IOPs are designed to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to each individual’s particular needs and circumstances.
Extended care addiction treatment is a comprehensive, personalized approach to treating substance use disorder and related issues. It typically includes both residential and outpatient programs that focus on individualized therapy, 12-step support groups, relapse prevention skills, life skills training, and more. In an extended care program, clients receive the combination of emotional support, accountability, and structure they need to begin their journey toward recovery.
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) for heroin addiction is an intensive form of treatment that combines elements of inpatient and outpatient care. PHP provides 24-hour supervision and support to help individuals living with substance use disorder break the cycle of addiction. This type of program is beneficial for those who require more structure than traditional outpatient care can provide but don’t need the 24-hour supervision that an inpatient facility offers.
This type of rehab allows people to live in their own homes while receiving medical and therapeutic services from trained professionals. During outpatient care, clients attend sessions at the facility several days a week but may also need to make additional visits for specific therapies or treatments. The goal of outpatient drug rehab is to help clients make lifestyle changes that will enable them to maintain sobriety and lead healthy, productive lives.
Investing in Therapy
Once we work on creating structure, your treatment for heroin addiction begins. You will have access to a wide range of treatment therapies. These are specific methods of helping you. You may not be exposed to all of them, but rather just those right for the type and level of care you need. Some examples include:
- Mindfulness meditation therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- 12 step recovery
- Group therapy sessions
You will also always work through individual therapy with our team. This is our time to help you to work on healing. We can talk about and work through any concerns you have. Then, you can embrace the wide range of holistic therapy options available to you here as well.
