Detoxing from Heroin
Detoxing from heroin can be achieved as comfortable as possible at the Florida House heroin Detox program. Detoxing from heroin is one of the most difficult drugs to overcome, but with professional medical help, detox can be a successful transition into treatment. Detox is always the first step when overcoming heroin addiction because the withdrawal symptoms are the most severe. It’s important to have the detoxification process done with before treatment is started in order to redirect focus on the recovery process rather than physical aliments a patient might experience during detox.
The will of the patient and support of those around them will ensure an easier detoxification process. None the less, detoxing from heroin is possible at the Florida Houses’ Heroin Detox Program. Heroin withdrawal symptoms may begin up to eight hours after the last use of the drug. These symptoms usually peak at 48-72 hours after the drug use and can last up to a few weeks to a month.
The withdrawal symptoms of heroin are as follows:
- Loss of appetite
- Running nose
- Chills or sweating
The Florida House Heroin Detox Program
Along with medical staff to provide comfort to detoxing patients, we also provide a variety of detox drugs, like Suboxone, in order to help our patients detox with the smallest amount of pain possible. These detox drugs are administered for only 5-7 days during the most horrific phase of drug detox. After detox, patients will begin the next phase of their recovery process, which is treatment. Residential care can last anywhere from 5 days to two weeks in the same facility.
Heroin detox programs can be very intimidating to addicts wishing to stop their addiction, but with the help of The Florida House staff, we make the transition to recovery as easy as possible. The variety of amenities our program offer will provide a relaxing setting where healing is the primary goal.
