Heroin Treatment Center
We want our patients to learn healthy coping mechanisms.
Heroin is an extremely potent opioid drug. It is highly addictive and extremely dangerous. There are 9.2 million users, with over 900,000 in the United States alone. In just one year, heroin caused over 50,000 overdose deaths.
Heroin users feel a rush of energy and euphoric feelings for only a few hours; however, there are many long-term effects that are not so pleasurable.
Short-term effects include:
Lower than normal body temperature
Long-term effects include:
Liver or kidney damage
Like all substance abuse, prolonged use causes tolerance and dependence, which is the beginning of addiction. When you see someone struggling with abuse, it is important for them to seek help before it gets to the addictive stage. Treating addiction is much harder than treating abuse but Sprout Health Texas is here to help no matter what stage you are at.
We begin each treatment with a detoxification process. This process is uncomfortable and sometimes unbearable, but we will closely monitor each patient’s progress in order to adjust their treatments accordingly.
We offer a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, including the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which helps patients recognize their maladaptive behaviors in order to learn how to positively react to certain situations. We want our patients to learn healthy coping mechanisms.
