Heroin Rehab: We Come To You
Heroin: What it is and Why Heroin Rehab Helps
Heroin is an opioid. Once it was discovered that treating things such as a common cough were far more detrimental than helpful, it became a schedule one substance in Canada. In turn, the immediate effects felt by injesting heroin, resulting in what most call a “warm blanket affect” is why its dependance rate is high. The withdrawal results in one of the most uncomfortable experiences one can go through. These symptoms are also felt by using other opoids such as Fentanyl, Morphine, Oxycodone and many other pain relieving drugs and medications. In turn, many people actually start out on a prescription drug and once addicted, they find themselves using heroin or fentanly as it becomes more accessable and cheaper. Once in withdrawal, seeking a medical withdawal program is proven to be much more successful when the addicted person has options such as OATS (opioid agonist therapy). There are many addiction treatment programs nearby, but very few that can provide drug rehab at your home. Then continuing a Heroin rehab program that includes counselling and relapse prevention is recommended once a person has gotten through the withdrawal phase.
