Heroin is a deadly drug. People who use it can quickly develop a tolerance to the drug, meaning they need more of it to get the same effects. Heroin hooks you quickly and unmercifully. You have to keep taking it to prevent withdrawal. It’s a horrible way to live.
Lucida Treatment Center can show you a better way of life. We offer compassionate, evidence-based treatment for heroin addicts. We have a wide selection of substance abuse treatment services. We’ll also help you heal from co-occurring mental disorders. Speak confidentially with a recovery advisor at 844-878-1996.
What to Expect in Inpatient Heroin Rehab
The first step in heroin treatment is a full physical, mental and psychological assessment. From there, we create a personalized treatment plan to address all your substance abuse and mental health needs. If necessary, we’ll refer you to a reputable heroin detox center prior to drug rehab.
During inpatient drug rehab, you’ll live in residences with other clients and attend treatment during the day. We offer evening recovery activities as well, such as 12-Step meetings or 12-Step alternatives. You’ll benefit from an integrated treatment approach. Lucida’s medical and behavioral health professionals work together to create a drug addiction treatment plan based on your physical and psychological needs. You’ll work with an experienced treatment team of therapists, psychiatrists, and addiction specialists.
Addicts recovering from heroin addiction need help rebuilding their lives. Heroin rehabilitation at Lucida encourages you to:
- Delve into the underlying emotional issues that can lead to addiction
- Learn new ways to regulate emotions
- Build relapse prevention skills
- Build new healthy living skills
- Practice better ways of relating to others
- Embrace a sober lifestyle and sober community
- Create boundaries to protect your sobriety
We can accommodate both short and long-term lengths of stay.
Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment
Heroin addiction often goes hand-in-hand with other behavioral health issues. Some people seek co-occurring treatment because of the effects of heroin addiction and then discover underlying problems. There’s a link between heroin addiction and some of the following issues:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorders
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Other substance use disorders
Psychiatric care is a critical component of your stay at our treatment facility. Lucida’s psychiatric teams address any mental health issues you’re struggling with. We prescribe treatment medications like antidepressants as needed.
What’s Causing Your Addiction?
It’s unclear exactly what leads people to become drug addicts. Heroin users are vulnerable to the powerfully addictive effects of the drug. But research suggests there are other reasons for substance abuse, including:
- Early childhood trauma
- Attachment trauma
- Undiagnosed mental illness
- Chronic problems with depression and anxiety disorders
- Genetic predisposition to addiction
- Environment and exposure to drugs
Understanding your family history and your past can help you find clues to issues that have led to drug abuse.
Therapeutic Treatment Options
Lucida offers many treatments for heroin addiction. Our team finds the best options for heroin rehab based on your needs. These often include:
Work one on one with a counselor trained in addiction and mental illness. You’ll explore underlying issues that contribute to drug abuse in a safe, accepting space. Lucida’s therapists draw on a number of proven approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy. We’ll help you work through emotional pain and develop healthy coping skills.
You’ll attend several group therapy sessions every day. Groups are led by mental health professionals and cover topics relevant to recovery. You’ll feel safe sharing with a group of peers who understand what you’re going through.
Addiction can tear families apart. We’ll help you rebuild and repair your relationships with loved ones. Family therapy is available as clinically appropriate. We also offer a family program where loved ones can connect with others and learn about addiction.
Emotional pain from trauma can lead people to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. Lucida offers therapies like EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) that help you heal from trauma.
Lucida takes a whole-person approach to treatment and recovery. You’ll begin repairing the physical damage of addiction through gentle movement, yoga, and fitness. You’ll also eat well-balanced meals and learn about nutrition.
Our goal is to help you address the underlying issues of your addiction and repair family relationships. We also want to teach you how to:
- Recognize and avoid emotional triggers
- Practice healthy coping skills
- Stand strong in sobriety when you leave our treatment facility
- Develop diligence and commitment in your recovery work
Recovery is not a destination. It’s a lifelong journey. People who follow inpatient treatment with outpatient rehab are less likely to relapse. Continuing care is important and necessary. We help you grow more confident and stronger in sobriety through some of the following relapse prevention resources:
- Outpatient therapy and groups
- Referral to sober-living residences
- 12-Step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
- Alternatives to 12-Step programs (Refuge Recovery and SMART Recovery)
- Family support or therapy
- Referrals to physicians and psychiatrists
- Guidance on healthy self-care practices
