Do you have a friend or loved one struggling with heroin addiction and who is in need of detox or inpatient heroin rehab?
Perhaps you have been searching for different heroin rehab centers trying to find the ideal fit for this person’s needs but aren’t sure what you should be looking for.
To begin, detoxing and starting on the road to sobriety from heroin addiction is not easy and should not be attempted alone. If detox is necessary, there is a wide range of detox centers that will medically assist someone off the drug and will know how to handle side effects, should they arise.
After detox, rehabilitation will take place and this is when the road to recovery really begins to take off. But how do you know if one heroin addiction rehab is a better fit over another?
With thousands of drug addiction treatment facilities available in America, it is wise to do your homework and determine which has the treatment options and programs you are searching for.
When you begin searching facilities, you will likely come across two main types of rehabilitation – inpatient heroin rehab and outpatient.
With inpatient, the individual stays at the treatment facility full time, and the program is typically more intense. Both treatment options have pros and cons, which may help you lean towards the right decision for your unique situation.
With inpatient heroin rehab, someone would typically see a higher success rate in completing the program and getting sober.
There are less outside distractions when someone is in a full time, inpatient rehab center and they are usually able to spend more time in programs and using services.
However, inpatient rehab is more expensive and it could be very disruptive to one’s personal life especially if they are married, have children, are employed, etc.
With outpatient rehab, the individual would live at home but go to the rehab facility during the day. Each individual rehab will determine how many days per week and which hours each day treatment would take place.
While outpatient is less disruptive to one’s home and working life and is usually cheaper, the success rate is typically lower.
Another thing you will want to research when looking at addiction treatment facilities is whether or not the facility that interests you is truly a heroin rehab center.
Many facilities specialize in addition to treatment for specific drugs or alcohol and have positive track records in helping treat those addictions.
Be sure the treatment center you are considering for your friend or loved one specializes in treating heroin addiction and can share with you about their plan for success and more about their track record.
When reviewing heroin addiction rehabs, you will also want to look at the amenities and activities offered at the facility.
These will range in different types of group counseling, types of therapies (art, animal therapy, etc.), nutrition programs, exercise, meditation, prayer time, and more depending on the facility.
With so many different types of programs, treatment options, amenities, and therapies offered, you will find the right inpatient heroin rehab to help your friend or loved one get the help they need.
