The heroin addiction treatment program at The Raleigh House incorporates a wide variety of industry-standard, evidence-based practices. Our experienced team carefully selects these practices based on your unique goals, challenges, and personal history.
Some of our effective, evidence-based treatment practices for heroin addiction include the following:
Medication-assisted therapy may be recommended in our comfortable, safe environment with 24-hour supervision to guide you through this critical first step.
We understand and appreciate that there may be a difference between physical dependence and addiction in some cases of chronic pain management.
As part of your care, you must do the necessary medical lab work to evaluate and understand your overall health.
Certain medications have been approved to help ease discomfort during treatment and make recovery safer. We use thorough assessments to determine if medication-assisted treatment can help reduce your recovery from heroin addiction.
We want to understand the function of your heroin use and why the addiction started in the first place. Individual therapy, group therapy, and family involvement give you different avenues to work through your addiction and connect with others going through the same things you are.
A substantial body of research supports the therapeutic value of animal-assisted therapy. Our clients benefit from canine- and equine-assisted therapies, which may help alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity, and other chronic mental health conditions.
Research shows that a structured art therapy program can have significant positive benefits when compared with other treatments offered to a control group. We use art therapy to help reduce the symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and low self-esteem and to improve the overall quality of your life.
Both yoga and meditation can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol, bolster the immune system, and help regulate mood.
We use techniques like these in a structured setting to help our clients practice mindfulness, improve self-awareness and regulate breathing.
Heroin slows down body movements and brain functioning. However, at The Raleigh House, we understand that exercise and mindfulness can improve these symptoms and help uncover your true self.
Heroin addiction can be a chronically relapsing condition that often significantly impacts the whole family.
While a person seeks individual addiction treatment, we offer family support and educational programming so loved ones can begin their process of education, awareness, understanding, change, and growth.
Addiction doesn’t just affect the individual. It impacts the entire family. This is why our comprehensive heroin rehab program also emphasizes the importance of family involvement.
If you’re living with an active heroin addiction, the answer is yes. Inpatient detox and rehabilitation are the most beneficial way to move from active addiction to long-term recovery.
The big mistake many people make is thinking that recovery is purely physical—just a question of detoxing and getting the drug out of your system.
The reality is that heroin changes the way your brain is wired. When you first stop using heroin, feeling happy and motivated will be challenging. Your brain will recover, but it usually takes about two months until most people think they’ve turned that corner.
During that critical period, you’ll want 24-hour access to a team of professionals who can help you. The last thing you want or need is to sit at home feeling miserable and alone.
Many people battling addiction suffer from at least one co-occurring condition, such as depression, anxiety, or attention deficit disorder. In fact, people with mood or anxiety disorders are about twice as likely to become addicted to drugs or alcohol, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse.
To get better and feel your best, you’ll need to face both heroin addiction and any co-occurring condition you may have. And that takes time. There are no shortcuts.
Because of the lethality of heroin and the opioid epidemic, we do not recommend outpatient treatment.
In many cases, heroin users also use meth or Xanax simultaneously, presenting a significant safety or withdrawal risk.
