Heroin Rehab & Detox

Heroin Rehab & Detox in New Jersey

In the short term, heroin offers users feelings of euphoria. These feelings keep users coming back, with every use making it more difficult to feel “normal” without heroin in their systems. Long-term, heroin can lead to collapsed veins, heart infections, renal disease, coma, and death. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 10,000 people in the U.S. die of heroin overdoses annually. From 2001 to 2014, there was a six-fold increase in these types of deaths.

We strongly encourage people addicted to heroin to not wait until rock bottom to seek help. While we can accept people at any stage of addiction, we believe that there is no time like the present to seek help. Long-term consequences can worsen the longer use continues.

Heroin Statistics

  • Prescription opioid use is a risk factor for heroin use. Based on data from 2002 to 2012, heroin use was 19 times higher in people who used painkillers non-medically (NIH).
  • A sampling of the general population indicated that nearly 80% of heroin users became addicted to prescription painkillers first (NIH).
  • While prescription painkillers and heroin have similar effects on users, the risk factors are vastly different, increasing the potential for overdose and other health risks such as HIV and injection-related diseases (NIH).
  • Much of what drives heroin use is its availability and affordability. A recent survey indicated that 94% of all opiate addicts opted for heroin because prescription opiates were too expensive and/or too hard to find (NIH).

Heroin Withdrawal Symptoms

Because heroin withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous, we strongly encourage those struggling with dependency on heroin to seek professional help for detox and rehabilitation. Common heroin withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Muscle or abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting and general feelings of nausea
  • Sweating
  • Restlessness or tremors
  • Increased heart rate

The severity of withdrawal symptoms make it difficult for those with heroin dependency to quit, which is why we strongly encourage a medically-based program for quitting.
