Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin addiction is a national epidemic, leaving more victims in its wake across the U.S. every day. Heroin is an extremely addictive opioid with a high propensity for physical and psychological dependence. Long-term recovery for most users may require time in a heroin detox center followed by a stay in an inpatient heroin rehab center.

The Dangers of Heroin Use
Heroin is particularly deadly due to the rapid pace at which tolerance develops. The drug acts on the reward center of the brain, releasing – and depleting – neurotransmitters. Users quickly need more and more of it to get the desired result and are at high risk of overdose for unintentionally taking lethal quantities. Heroin is also dangerous due to hazardous “fillers” that street dealers often mix with the drug. Poorly mixed, toxic batches of heroin have caused uncountable deaths across the nation. Additionally, sharing needles to shoot heroin intravenously puts users at risk for AIDS, Hepatitis C and other infectious diseases.
