Therapeutic Corner – Detoxification Clinics

Therapeutic Corner

Coppola’s CornerA very important step in recovery that is often overlooked by people (sometimes even the individual addicted to drugs and/or alcohol) is detox. This is the first step and the most important because if it’s not done, or not done properly, the continued steps toward recovery will never happen.

Unfortunately many people (even people in recovery) don’t understand the importance of detoxing comfortably in a safe environment. Some people will say that the addict/alcoholic should go “cold turkey” and “tough it out”. Though the idea of the addict/alcoholic suffering may sound good to some people, especially those who’ve been hurt by the individual’s addiction, and it would even be logical to assume that the more “pain” a person suffers through their detox the less likely they will be to use again, it is unwise and often medically risky to go “cold turkey” or “tough it out”.

Heroin Addiction

Heroin Addiction

Heroin is considered to be one of the most addictive drugs sold illegally today

Heroin AddictionSomeone who is addicted to Heroin will go to any length to obtain it. Moreover, when such a person stops taking the drug he or she will suffer serious physical consequences of withdrawal. A detoxification for heroin addiction is usually necessary to get this drug out of the users system. There are many excellent detoxes for Heroin addiction and the drug rehab Center works as part of a treatment network with many of them.

Treatment for Heroin addiction will vary according to the length of time which someone has been addicted , to their physical symptoms and medical condition in general and to whatever other drugs , including alcohol, which they may have been mixing with their use of Heroin. People generally will use heroin in two ways, either snorting or injecting. The first time a person uses Heroin the drug causes a feeling of extreme euphoria ( and sometimes paranoia ) and this is intoxicating. The drug also has noticable effects on the user physically ; heaviness all over his body, skin flushes, and dry mouth. Heroin also affects the brain of the user including the central nervous system. In truth, Heroin causes symptoms which mimic in many ways those of a person having a mild stroke, such as a very slow gait, and a hard time talking and imparied physical movement of the extremities.
