Heroin Rehab

Understanding heroin addiction

Heroin is an opiate drug that is produced from opium poppies. It usually takes the form of a powder that is either brown or white in colour. Users can either smoke or inject the drug (the latter after dissolving the powder in water). Heroin is also known as a painkiller because it is made from morphine and is used in medical treatments under its name of 'diamorphine' around the world for treating severe pain and/or sleeplessness.

Because it is highly synthesised and a lot stronger than morphine, heroin is an incredibly addictive and illegal substance, with addiction to the drug affecting around 9 million people worldwide. Heroin abuse has a detrimental affect on both the user and their family, with many abusers getting into financial hardship or facing a struggle to maintain their personal relationships with loved ones.

Do you or does someone you love have a heroin addiction? We can help at our rehab centre. It is sometimes hard to accept or get a loved one to accept that they have a drug problem, and drug issues can affect anyone, regardless of their background or age. Call us today to see how a mindful and compassionate approach to heroin rehabilitation can enable you or a family member to recover and live a drug-free life.

Our approach to heroin rehabilitation

Our professional team are very experienced in planning detoxes that help and support those that want to emancipate themselves from heroin addiction. We can give you effective guidance through a bespoke programme that focuses on healing your body, mind and soul with holistic practices, helping you to walk away from heroin abuse for good. We can offer a long term solution to your problem, and help you to understand why you may be an addict, whilst providing you with compassion and the determination you need to succeed. We are based in the sunny Costa Brava – a relaxing haven in Teulada where spending time in a warm and nourishing climate can work wonders on both mind and spirit.

Our recovery programme can help you focus on the mental and physical sides of heroin rehabilitation. Any heroin rehab programme typically involves a withdrawal process, for which you should prepare. Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person, but can last up to two weeks or more (since your last dose of heroin). During this time, we will observe you closely to ensure that you are safe and healthy. Working together, we will slowly decrease your heroin consumption to a point where you no longer feel you need heroin.

Depending on the nature of your addiction, during a heroin rehab programme with us you may be offered drugs that can help ease your withdrawal symptoms, such as sedatives. Once you are able to control your withdrawal symptoms, you can have counselling and therapy sessions with us to focus on the triggers that cause your addiction.

We also understand that the families of our patients can become emotionally affected by their loved one facing heroin rehabilitation. We offer therapy with qualified psychologists, rehab specialists and psychiatrists which can involve your family members, too, so they have a greater understanding of your condition and your requirements as you undertake your journey towards recovery. Your loved ones can also attend our centre to help you stay on track with your treatment and support you. We also give you forward planning sessions to help prevent relapse and to help you stay on target and focused in moving forward, as well as an aftercare service that lasts for 18 months in which you can make contact with us whenever you need to following completion of your treatment.
