Heroin Addiction

Heroin is a powerful and highly addictive drug even short-term use can be extremely dangerous. At Pavillon, treatment programs for substance abuse disorders such as heroin addiction are designed to consider the individual, providing personalized care throughout the recovery process.

Symptoms of Heroin Abuse and Addiction

Heroin abuse and addiction can have serious effects on many aspects of an individual's life. An individual struggling with heroin addiction will have an increased tolerance for the drug and will develop a physical or emotional dependence on it. Withdrawal symptoms, which are often severe, can occur if the person stops taking the drug, making it even more difficult to break the cycle of addiction.

Treatment for Heroin Addiction

Initial treatment for heroin addiction almost always requires medically supervised detoxification. This process safely removes the drug from the patient's system. Then, a comprehensive assessment is performed to determine appropriate treatment planning. At Pavillon, substance abuse programs for heroin and other drug addictions are designed to provide integrated care for co-occurring disorders and to address physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. Therapeutic components include individual and group therapy, family counseling, educational programs, relapse prevention, and more.
