Help for Heroin & Opioid Addiction

Ohio, like most other states in the county, is battling an opioid addiction crisis with increasing numbers of people overdosing from these drugs. Although prescription opioids are normally given to mitigate pain e.g. after surgery, they still carry the same risks as synthetic or illegal opioids such as heroin. Those who abuse these drugs are at an increased risk of developing tolerance and dependence on them.

Developing a dependence on opioids means that these drugs become central to your thoughts and activities. Your waking moments are spent thinking of how to get the next high, getting high, and dealing with the withdrawal symptoms afterward. Tolerance, on the other hand, means that you have to keep taking more of the drug to achieve the same high as before. This is dangerous because the higher the dosage, the more likely you are to overdose on opioids.

Once you’re addicted to opioids, it can be challenging to break the hold they have on your life. Some of the symptoms of opioid addiction include drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, muscle rigidity, itchy skin, respiratory depression as well as hormonal and immune system dysfunction.

Treatment for Heroin and Opioid Addiction

Help for Heroin & Opioid Addiction

Overcoming opioid addiction is extremely difficult but possible with the right treatment and assistance. At Findlay Recovery Center, we pride ourselves on providing quality care and opioid addiction treatment in Ohio. Over the years, we’ve learned what works and are proud to have helped hundreds beat their addiction to heroin and other opioids.

Our opioid addiction treatment program is based on evidence-based methods that have been found highly effective in not only breaking addiction but also helping individuals achieve long-term sobriety. These methods include:

Medically Assisted Detox

Before you can enter any of our drug or alcohol addiction treatment programs, you first need to detox. This means giving your body time to get rid of any toxins and substances left by drugs. Unfortunately, once you stop taking opioids, your body will begin showing withdrawal symptoms and some of these can be life-threatening.

That’s why it’s recommended to undergo treatment under medical supervision. That way you’ll have doctors on call to help you manage any uncomfortable symptoms and to administer medication should it be necessary.

Rehab treatment

There are different rehab treatment programs offered at the Findlay Recovery Center. This includes residential drug treatment programs, outpatient addiction treatment, and an aftercare program. We offer individualized treatment for all patients to ensure that we monitor their progress according to their unique recovery goals. This helps reduce the chances of relapse while ensuring that patients have enough time to internalize what they learn during their individual or group therapy sessions.

Additionally, have an aftercare program that ensures those in recovery receive the support they need as they leave rehab for the real world. This includes linking them with community support groups that will help guide and support them in their recovery. With help from Findlay Recovery Center, you too can beat heroin and opioid addiction.
