Heroin Treatment

A variety of heroin treatment programs are available today, helping hundreds and thousands of addiction sufferers get out of their dependency and save their health. Treatment is often more effective when the abuse is recognized early on. Individual cases may respond differently from certain kinds of treatments, which is why it is important to find the right mix of therapies and medications that will address all your needs to pull your chances of recovery up. Treatment programs are often a combination of pharmacological and behavioural therapies and finding the right balance between these methods will increase your chances of recovery. Here are the best advantages of pharmacological and behavioural therapies for heroin addiction:                                                                                               

Pharmacotherapy Advantages

  • Medications are not injected, which means a reduced risk of various blood-borne viruses like HIV and hepatitis.
  • Methadone and buprenorphine, along with other maintenance treatments are manufactured in highly controlled environments, unlike street drugs that may contain harmful fillers and vary in strength.
  • While the effects of heroin can only last a few hours, pharmacotherapy treatments last longer (from 24 to 48 hours or even longer).
  • When undergoing heroin rehab, you no longer have to worry about getting your fix multiple times a day, thus reducing anxiety.
  • As the dependence is stabilised, you can focus on caring for and looking after yourself. This allows great improvement in health, nutrition, and even in relationships.
  • Medications are cheaper than heroin, so you can put your hard-earned cash to better use.

Behavioural Therapy Benefits

When integrated with pharmacologic treatments, behavioural therapies can truly work wonders in helping you get over your addiction. The ultimate and most effective approach to heroin treatment is finding the perfect types of intervention and behavioural practices that will help you ignore your triggers and come to terms with treatment and recovery. There are different residential as well as outpatient approaches to choose from when looking for an effective behavioural therapy for addiction. Contingency management therapy, for example, allows you to earn points whenever you pass your drug test, which you can then exchange for different items that promote healthy living. Cognitive behavioural interventions, on the other hand, help change your thinking, behaviours, and expectancies, therefore helping you cope with the stressors that trigger your addiction.
