Current Treatment Methods
While the vaccine is still in its development stages, heroin addiction is increasing by the day. Traditional inpatient and outpatient programs in a Hamilton dual diagnosis rehab center prove effective in treating addicts. In fact, even if human testing proves to be successful, addicts would still have to rely on professional rehabilitation to go completely drug free because:
- The vaccine only kills cravings for heroin and not other drugs,
- The heroin still remains in the blood stream to do its damage
If you or a loved is facing heroin addiction issues, seek professional help immediately.
Friends Make You Promises About Drugs That They Cannot Keep
Your friends told you that you would have the time of your life when you got high. They said that you would see all kinds of things and you'd feel really great. They said that you would forget all of your problems if only you popped that pill or smoked that stuff. They said things at first that sounded good in your mind as you were tempted. But as addiction became worse and worse, reality struck you. Your friends and even the drugs lied to you! Promises were made that could never be kept. Now, you're addicted.
- Drugs are a fun pastime and never hurt anyone.
- Addiction only happens after you use a whole lot. Not after just a one-time use.
- You can stop using drugs anytime you like. Just quit.
The psychological effects are also as dangerous as the physical ones. Many people are known to take prescription medication to calm themselves, but consumption and its subsequent withdrawal symptoms can actually worsen any mental condition that they are suffering from. Also note that addicts can experience life-threatening convulsions, but this only happens on rare occasions.
Medications may also be used to curb these symptoms, such as clonidine, suboxone, and methadone. In-patient facilities even offer therapy sessions (both group and individual), along with educational lectures.
Outpatient programs, on the other hand, may require you to check in with a counselor every day, or stay at the center for eight hours each day.
