Heroin Rehab

Heroin Addiction Rehab in Kennesaw

Recovery is in Reach

Heroin can be ingested by snorting, smoking, or injection. In any form, it is a highly-addictive and highly-dangerous drug. Ceasing heroin use is very difficult, but it is not impossible.

North Georgia Recovery Center can help if you are struggling with heroin addiction and are looking for a way out. We offer individual, group, and family therapy, partial hospitalization and outpatient programs, and alternative methods of treatment such as art therapy and spiritual groups. Our licensed therapists will tailor their approach to your specific needs so your individualized treatment plan is right for you.

Dangers of Heroin Use

Addiction, overdose, and death are the most common risks of using heroin. It is virtually impossible to use heroin without getting addicted to it, and tolerance for the drug builds quickly. As a person becomes increasingly dependent and requires more of the drug to obtain the high they initially experienced, they may experience effects such as heart infections, liver disease, kidney disease, respiratory issues, and other damaging health issues.

Heroin is also dangerous because of the severity of withdrawal. The highly-addictive properties of heroin make the mind and body of users dependent on the drug, and in its absence, debilitating side effects result. For this reason, it is extremely difficult to quit using heroin “cold turkey.” People who would like to recover from heroin addiction must do so in a structured, controlled environment in which medical care is readily available.

In addition to the overwhelming cravings that most people experience, heroin withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Cold sweats and chills
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Insomnia
  • Body pain and cramping

How to Identify Heroin Addiction

If you believe that a person you love is using heroin, there are ways you can help. North Georgia Recovery Center has resources for patients and their families to work toward recovery and reconnect. Familiarizing yourself with the signs of heroin use can be the first step toward your loved one’s rehabilitation.

Heroin users may appear slow, sluggish, and disconnected. The drug produces intense feelings of euphoria and relaxation, which contributes to the languid appearance of people who are using. Other signs of heroin addiction may include pupil dilation, weight loss, shortness of breath, needle marks, and itching.

The high level of addictiveness of heroin means the drug often causes significant disruption to the everyday life and functionality of users. A person who is addicted to heroin may begin exhibiting changes in behavior such as isolating and withdrawing from work and activities. Heroin use can also be identified if a person who shows other signs of addiction is experiencing financial distress that cannot apparently be attributed to any other reason.
