About Heroin Use & Addiction

Heroin is an opioid made from the resin of poppy plants. It is a highly addictive drug first manufactured by the Bayer pharmaceutical company as a treatment for tuberculosis. When used recreationally, it is sought for its euphoric effect.

By the late 1990s, the mortality rate of heroin addicts was estimated to be as high as twenty times greater than the rest of the population and by 2015, the number of people addicted to heroin more than doubled over a decade to 591,000. This is why finding a heroin addiction treatment center in South Jersey is important.

How Does Outpatient Rehab Work?

Detox

Your treatment may start with detox. During this period, your body will begin to rid itself of the poisonous toxins from heroin use. You can expect to experience mild to severe withdrawals. Some of your withdrawals may be severe enough that you will need supervision or even medication. However, within a few days, you will start to feel better and hopeful.

Outpatient Treatment

During outpatient rehab, you will receive education, therapy, and lots of support from professionals, family, and a support group. Everyone will be rooting for you as you achieve each phase of your treatment. The program is extended so that you have time to reach your treatment goals.

We provide a wide range of treatments that are suited to your particular situations and needs. Our outpatient rehab program allows you to continue your day-to-day routine, such as going to work or taking care of family matters. You can set a time for your meetings that works around your regular schedule.

Your outpatient treatment will allow you to go more deeply into your addiction, any mental issues you may be suffering from, and your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. We offer holistic treatment that heals your whole self and doesn’t just address the addiction. We believe in a full recovery that gives you an overall sense of wellness.
