Addictive Heroin Types
Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is known to the medical community as part of the opiate family, but not of the prescription opiates we typically hear about such as pain medications. It’s often in the same group of these opiate medications because it’s a derived from morphine. Heroin is known for being crafted from the extracts of poppy plants. Unfortunately, those who take this drug do not realize that it is one of the worst addictions physically as it damages the body by the invasive ways it is taken. Its addiction can be fatal and life threatening for the person and undeniably the hardest on the end users closest to kin in that usually the addict will go to any means necessary to fend off the convulsing effects it has on the body when one is detoxing.
Symptoms of Heroin Addiction
In its original form, heroin is powdery and can be ingested through the nose by snorting and can be made or “cut” with a variety of impure substances. Depending on where it is acquired, many people that are addicted to this drug take it without any idea of exactly what is in it. The most dangerous method is injection which is done using needles that are often shared and unclean, causing the spread of many infections. HIV, hepatitis A, B, and C could be contracted from these contaminated needles in addition to many other viruses. Heroin that is injected into the veins or muscle tissues in the form of a blackened tar texture that is called “black tar heroin”. This type of heroin is the most unclean type of heroin because the composition is often extremely impure and can deteriorate the body faster as it’s taken over time causing respiratory, heart and neurological issues.
Overdose from heroin is often the end for many addicts and we at Genesis Recovery want our clients to understand the severity of taking this drug. Heroin ruins the lives of the user and those connected through family and friendships. The reason this drug is so addictive is mainly that stricter laws and regulations on prescription drugs make opiates harder to come by, and they become too expensive.
The short-term effects of heroin make this drug difficult to get off of, and the short burst of euphoric or sensually pleasing effects are so intense and last so little, that users seek it more often than any other drug.
Those more likely to develop heroin addiction:
- Men in their early twenties
- Low-income white and black males
- Those with concurring and undiagnosed mental illness
- Those who have a family history of addictions
- Affected by depression and severe anxiety
Treatment For Heroin at Genesis Recovery California
There are many treatments available at Genesis Recovery, and the first that we begin with is detoxification from heroin and any other substances our client comes into our treatment center addicted to. It’s important that you let your intake counselor and detox team know what other drugs or substances you’ve used recently. Therapy requires a clear mind that can be present and able to think objectively throughout the process. We have a no tolerance policy at Genesis Recovery that makes no excuses and will not allow any substance abuse during your treatment.
We know that after your detox treatment is complete, our one on one counseling sessions are easier to integrate and allow for more connection between the therapist and addict.
Our therapists will look for specific personality traits, learning methods, concurring mental health conditions and interactions that are most effective for each client. They will help each client uncover their past experiences that lead them to their addiction and everything in their lives that has suffered since the start of their addiction.
At Genesis Recovery, we use a comprehensive treatment approach to help you recover from drug abuse. We call our method the Spiritually Therapeutic Treatment Approach, which includes faith-based learning, clinical treatment and the 12-step process, and it is done in a protected environment.
