Heroin Addiction

The Effects of Heroin Addiction

Signs and symptoms of a heroin dependency include a number of behavioural, physical and psychological side effects. If your addiction is severe, life-limiting effects can be caused. Symptoms of consistent heroin abuse include the inability to maintain relationships and work, poor nutrition, respiratory problems and a weakened immune system. Please be aware that side effects can differ from person to person, from minor, short-term to chronic, life-threatening disorders.

One of the greatest dangers of heroin addiction is long-term brain damage. Naturally, a healthy brain will produce natural opioids, aiding high functionality. As individuals consume greater quantities of heroin, natural opioids are slowly replaced with dangerous chemicals. This significantly influences oxygen levels, slowly killing receptors in the brain. Once this sets in, it is difficult to reverse any side effects. Therefore, if you are suffering from a heroin addiction, seek support through a local residential drug rehab centre before greater damage is caused.

Here at Asana Lodge, we specialise in supporting clients through addiction therapeutic treatment and clinical detoxes, designed to promote long-term recovery. We can support you through overcoming your heroin addiction and reverse the associated health risks experienced.


Treatment In Place To Support Those With A Heroin Addiction

Whether you’re currently living with a short or long-term heroin addiction, here at Asana Lodge, we promote industry-leading addiction treatments at our leading, luxury rehab centre. Of course, rehabilitation can be attempted by anyone. However, for long-term probable recovery, utilising the best tools possible is required.

That’s what makes our offering different. We have a team of specialists dedicated to utilising effective methods to work through your addiction recovery.

While visiting our luxury rehab centre, you will receive a variety of treatments, focusing on tackling your psychological and physical connections to heroin. See a breakdown of the addiction treatment methods recommended below:

– Medication:

This is a favoured treatment method used to help individuals with chronic addictions. A number of medications are used to subsidise the effects of heroin, helping individuals slowly reduce consumption. This method must be overseen by a medical expert.

– Cognitive Behavioural Therapy:

In order to tackle the psychological connection clients have to heroin, cognitive behavioural therapy will be recommended. This treatment helps clients work on their mindset and change their perspective on drug consumption.

– Motivational Therapy:

For many individuals suffering from an addiction, motivation to prosper in different areas of their life is lacking. Their focus is on their addiction. These sessions will help clients develop the motivation to take positive steps to transform their future.

– Individual and Family Therapy:

Although this method can be difficult for some individuals as they struggle to open up, it is a significant treatment to complete. Discussing your addiction and its effects will help your family members understand your heroin consumption greater, along with working on any related mental health issues.

– Heroin Detox:

This addiction treatment is highly successful for individuals suffering from a heroin dependency. Although this is a difficult step when considering rehabilitation, it is vital to achieve long-term recovery. All drugs will slowly be flushed out of your system, slowly reducing both physical and psychological cravings. Here you will experience heroin withdrawal symptoms, therefore, visiting a residential rehab centre is recommended for ease and greater support.

A combination of the above addiction treatments will be recommended to fully diminish your heroin fixation. We will cater treatments to fit your personal requirements, ensuring that treatment is effective for you. We will assess your progress to ensure that treatments are suitable and are supporting you effectively.

Post-rehab we will also offer outpatient treatment to help promote greater recovery. We will recommend regular support groups, along with implementing your relapse prevention knowledge to reduce any temptation. Please be reassured that we will continue to support you once you’ve left our rehab centre. We are passionate about prolonging service to ensure you’ve transitioned back into reality, armed with effective tools.
