Heroin has a devastating effect on the human body. Without heroin drug treatment, an addict can suffer from long-term effects such as collapsed veins, heart infection and liver disease. Pulmonary complications from heroin use include pneumonia and depressed respiratory function. Additives often used in heroin also can clog blood vessels leading to the lungs, liver, kidneys and brain, resulting in death.
Heroin treatments such as the one offered by Narconon Arrowhead help heroin addicts kick the habit and return to their role as a healthy and sober member of society.
Narconon Arrowhead Treatment for Heroin Success Rates
Our specialized addiction treatment for heroin addicts results in a more than 70 percent success rate, which proves significantly higher than the success rates touted by other treatments for heroin addiction. Our heroin treatment center is often the last stop for addicts who have tried other programs and failed.
Narconon Arrowhead Treatments for Heroin Addiction
At the core of our success is a sauna-based therapy that detoxifies the body. During treatment for heroin addiction, an addict suffers through some of the worst withdrawal symptoms possible. They include cravings, restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes and kicking movements. Our therapy literally sweats the heroin and heroin residue from the addict’s body to minimize withdrawal symptoms and speed up the withdrawal process. Because withdrawal from heroin can be so severe, the addict is medically supervised throughout the process. We do not, however,
incorporate drugs into the detox process, as we do not believe substituting one drug for another leads to rehabilitation success.
Once the addict has flushed the toxins from his body, he begins to attend individual and group therapy sessions. These sessions focus on teaching the addict to accept the life he has lead until now and to take ownership of past behaviors and actions so he can move on with his life. The addict also learns life skills to help him cope with the world outside of our heroin abuse treatment program.
