Learn About Heroin Addiction Treatment

Treatment for heroin addiction at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Heroin addiction is an opioid use disorder involving a chemical dependency on the illegal drug heroin, which is made from morphine, a natural substance taken from the seedpod of opium poppy plants. Heroin can be a white or brown powder or a black, sticky tar.

Like other opioid drugs, heroin binds to the opioid receptors of the brain, creating a rush of pleasure when individuals use this substance. Heroin is also highly addictive, and individuals who use heroin often develop a tolerance that requires them to use more and more of the substance to achieve the desired effect.

Individuals who suffer from heroin addiction may experience intense withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop using the drug, including severe cravings at the sight of any powdery substances that resemble the drug. Someone who has heroin use disorder will also struggle to stop using heroin, even if their drug use damages their personal relationships or interferes with their daily life.

At Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, we provide residential addiction treatment in a safe and confidential environment for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with heroin use disorder. Our caring and compassionate staff is dedicated to creating treatment plans that are personalized to your unique recovery needs, helping you reach sustained sobriety.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting heroin addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

If you are suffering from heroin addiction and do not seek treatment, you are at risk for a variety of negative effects. Heroin can impact your heart rate, breathing, and ability to fall or stay asleep. It can also cause you to go in and out of consciousness and feel mentally foggy, making it hard to think clearly and make healthy decisions.

Because heroin changes your brain, it can affect your impulse control and cause you to act out in ways you normally would not. This can damage your relationships with the people closest to you and impact your school or work performance. The more severe an individual’s heroin addiction, the more likely they are to have frequent run-ins with the law and potentially even experience incarceration.

The longer you wait to seek treatment for heroin addiction, the higher your risk for developing lung complications such as pneumonia, liver and kidney disease, heart infections, damaged nose tissue, and chronic constipation. Because heroin is an illegal street drug, it often contains unknown additives that can cause permanent damage to the body.

Getting heroin addiction treatment is the first step in preventing any long-term damage from an opioid use disorder. The experts at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, use the latest treatment solutions to help adults age 18 and older heal from certain mental health challenges in addition to heroin addiction.

We work very closely with other community providers, so we can refer you to the appropriate resources after you complete residential treatment, whether that is a recovery house, partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, outpatient mental health program, primary care provider, dentist, eye care provider, or family therapist. Depending on your needs, you may also receive continuing care education, including relapse prevention, developing support systems, understanding triggers and cravings, and conflict resolution.

A member of our staff will stay in frequent contact with you for up to 90 days after you transition out of our care to check on your progress. You may also choose to participate in alumni events, such as picnics, ice skating events, and group hikes, throughout the year for added support.
