About Heroin Addictions

Heroin and opiate abuse is one of the fastest-growing and deadliest addictions. With the use of these destructive substances growing, CASA Recovery’s extensive treatment programs offers you or your loved one the best opportunity to fight opiate addiction. Using a holistic approach, our experienced staff can provide our clients the tools they need to get and stay clean.

However, the detox and recovery process for heroin addiction can be intimidating. CASA Recovery has a consolation hotline that is open 24/7 to put you at ease about our holistic, all-inclusive programs. Below is information about the recovery process, from start to finish.

How Does Heroin Addiction Start?

For loved ones of addicts and even users themselves, it might be hard to grasp how an addiction to heroin begins. Nearly half of addicts surveyed in recent studies reported abusing prescription opioids like Oxycotin, Vicodin, and Demerol before starting to use heroin. At CASA Recovery, we see this all the time with our clients. What may have started as legitimate pain medication turned into a difficult to control addiction. This overuse of prescription pills can offer the same pleasurable feelings and sensations that occur when using heroin. The switch from pills to heroin typically occurs while chasing that high because heroin is cheaper and easier to obtain than prescription opioids.

Physical Dependence & Long Term Effects

Heroin use causes a physical dependence. This means a user relies on the drug to prevent unpleasant and sometimes painful and dangerous withdrawal symptoms from forming. In some cases, withdrawal can occur just hours after the last use, which is a slippery slope for addiction. With prolonged use of heroin a tolerance is built up for the drug, and greater amounts of it are needed to produce the same effects or hold off withdrawal. One of the most dangerous effects of long term heroin use is that it creates imbalances in neuronal and hormonal systems in the body that are very difficult to reverse.

Treatment Options

Some rehab facilities offer pharmacological treatments for heroin addiction. This treatment slowly weans you off of the drug using medication that eases cravings and withdrawal symptoms over a longer period. However, these substances themselves can be addictive opiates. At CASA Recovery, we believe in a natural approach to treating the source of addiction that is unique to each patient. After a complete, comfortable detox at a local hospital or detox facility, our clients are given the tools, support, and community they need to get and stay sober.

Our treatment programs are offered for 30, 60 or 90 days, and are all-inclusive programs which allow an individual to be as safe and comfortable as possible during the recovery process. You won’t feel like you’re in a hospital setting at CASA Recovery – instead, our patients are relaxed and comfortable in a home-style environment by the sea.

Our treatment programs follow a comprehensive schedule that provides the opportunity to address both the physical and mental aspects of addiction. Twelve-step meetings are accompanied by personal training, yoga, meditation, massages and acupuncture. Beautiful sober living homes in Southern California provide a scenic and relaxing environment that allows our clients to focus on their recovery without distractions.
