Heroin Rehab at PVRC
Heroin is a very addictive illicit (illegal) drug found in almost all parts of the world, but most commonly produced in underdeveloped nations in South America and the Middle East. The heroin being used and distributed in the United States usually reaches our shores after making its way through a network of drug cartels. Heroin was made illegal because of its lack of effectiveness compared with other opiate medications that can be more closely regulated and laboratory produced. An overwhelming majority of heroin addicts start using heroin only when prescription opiates are no longer a viable option to feed their habit. When a user experiences the powerful effects of heroin for the first time, it can be very challenging to avoid falling into addiction. Intravenous use of the drug is almost always the end game of an opiate addiction, as the user continues to chase the euphoric effects produced by the drug, and this often leads to serious and potentially life threatening health side effects.
Heroin almost always causes a user’s life to spin out of control rapidly, as they find themselves becoming completely immersed in their addiction. Money, time, personal relationships, and careers all fall victim to feeding the addiction. A state of hopelessness begins to consume a heroin addict’s life and they may begin to think they are destined to suffer from addiction for the rest of their life.
But there is a way out, with the help of the Heroin Rehab Program at Pacific View Recovery Center.
Choosing the Right Heroin Rehab Program
Heroin addiction has become a stark reality for hundreds of thousands of people in recent years, and it is imperative that someone struggling with heroin addiction understands the level of care that is required to treat their addiction. Heroin is almost universally recognized as the most addictive substance on earth, and because of that, is accompanied by the lowest chance for successful recovery if a problem should develop. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that Heroin addiction is treated aggressively with the intensive, in-patient care available at PVRC’s Heroin Rehab. Upon entering our facility, the heroin addict will be guided gently but firmly to the realization that if they want to truly break free of their addiction, they will have to learn to make a real commitment to their own recovery.

The first phase of heroin rehab involves detoxification, or detox. This process can last anywhere from several hours to several days, and will occasionally entail a certain degree of discomfort as the body attempts to rid itself of all foreign substances. PVRC’s heroin rehab is supervised by medical doctors and industry experts with over 100 years of combined experience, and every effort is made to make clients as comfortable and safe as possible during detox. After the detox period has passed, the PVRC Clinical Team creates a specific treatment plan designed to address each client’s specific needs and ensure long term freedom from this harrowing addiction (source: http://oas.samhsa.gov/Heroin.htm).
