Heroin withdrawal is difficult. There’s no sugarcoating that. Anyone saying that it’s a simple, easy procedure is either being too positive or stretching the truth. Heroin detox is important. Moreover, it should be overseen by medical professionals. By having experienced medical experts watching over you or someone you care about during detox, the withdrawal symptoms can be lessened, if not outright eliminated. Here at Carus Recovery, we know how difficult detoxing from heroin can be. There’s no way to make the detox process easy, but at our heroin detox in Los Angeles, we can make the procedure easier than it might be otherwise.
Early Steps at our Heroin Detox in Los Angeles
When you arrive, we make sure that you undergo a thorough evaluation as quickly as possible. There, medical professionals will go over your physical and medical history. From there, we can figure out exactly how we can proceed. Using that information, we’ll put together a unique treatment plan for your specific needs. This plan will cover your treatment, what kinds of therapies you’re best suited for, and so forth. This plan is yours, unique to you and your specific needs. That way, you can get the best treatment for your addiction.
The First Days
Depending on when you or someone you care about last used heroin, the withdrawal might begin as soon as the first day. We’ve seen symptoms start just six hours after the last use. Unfortunately, on the first day, muscle aches, diarrhea, insomnia, panic attacks, anxiety, uncontrollable shaking and other kinds of symptoms can manifest themselves. Indeed, these symptoms (and others) are reason enough to go to a heroin detox where you’ll be overseen by people who are used to heroin withdrawal. Trying to go through all of this in your home isn’t just unwise, it’s genuinely unsafe. Here at Carus, you can get the help that you need.
Later Stages of Withdrawal
Depending on the client’s tolerance, heroin withdrawal could also lead to vomiting, excessive sweating, shivers, all kinds of abdominal cramping and many other physical symptoms. Again, during this time, our goal is to comfort you. We know how difficult this can be, which is why our focus is on making sure you’re safe, secure, and as comfortable as possible. There’s probably no way for us to make the symptoms go away entirely, but we can make it less painful than it could be so that you can emerge from detox free of any toxic substances.
After Detox, a Fresh Start
It’s natural to feel tired, even a bit worn down, after heroin detox. That’s normal. We’ve helped so many to not just go through the heroin detox process, but also the rehab one as well. At Carus Recovery, you can take those first steps towards leading a happy, healthy, and sober life. Here, we focus on treating the underlying issues that have caused your addiction.
