Recover from Illegal Drugs Without Judgement
Heroin is known by many names and comes in many forms. You might call it smack, dust, H, or heroin. You might get it as a brown or white powder, or even a sticky black substance, a.k.a. black tar heroin. Whether you sniff, snort, shoot, or smoke it, heroin is a highly addictive drug.
The bad news? If you’re ready to get clean, you might be facing an uphill battle, especially if you do it alone. The good news?
At Metro Atlanta Treatment, our team of professionals is dedicated to helping people just like you overcome their heroin addictions.
How Heroin Addiction Affects You
Heroin triggers temporary feelings of pleasure or euphoria. With long-term use, it can also lead to depression, insomnia, and heart infections. Like other opioids, heroin can lead to a dangerous or fatal overdose, as well. Without immediate medical attention, an overdose can lead to coma and loss of life.
Fatal overdoses are especially common with heroin, as the drug is completely unregulated, so you may accidentally overdose with one “hit.” Because heroin is illegal, the people around you may also be hesitant to call for help and risk getting in trouble.
What Are the Treatments for Heroin Addiction?
At Metro Atlanta Treatment, we offer comprehensive heroin addiction programs. Our primary treatments include therapy, as well asbrain-mapping/neurofeedback, wellness activities, adventure-based counseling, volunteering, and arts and culture. The FDA has also approved medications to support the treatment of heroin addiction when necessary. You can access these treatments through our:
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): PHP is an alternative to inpatient programs. It gives you stability and access to our medical team whenever you need it.
- Intensive outpatient programs (IOP): IOP helps you move through clinical treatment with fewer restrictions and apply the lessons you learn in the real world as you recover.
- Night Outpatient Treatment: Similar to IOP, night outpatient treatment gives you more flexibility, allowing you to continue to work during the day and undergo treatment at night.
