Addiction No More: The Idaho Heroin Addiction Help Line
Idaho doesn’t track heroin deaths like most states do. The state uses the total number of overdose rates, which simply reads overdoses; failing to differentiate between drugs in previous years, leaving an inaccurate tracking of individual drug overdose rates. Drug-related deaths are up from 69 deaths in 2000 to the lasted report available being from 2009, where there were 184 deaths that year. That is up 300% over a 9 year period.
In 2014 there were 12 reported heroin deaths by the Department of Health and Welfare in Idaho. You can go to any corner of downtown Boise, Idaho and find heroin within minutes. Heroin seizures from Idaho state police have risen 800% from the years 2014 to 2015 and the state officials are not taking this new threat lightly.
Why is Heroin becoming a popular choice for Idaho residents?
In recent years, there was a huge prescription drug problem in Idaho and doctors were prescribing opioid pain relievers too often. The recent crackdown of prescription pain pills has left a large population of closet abusers high and dry, looking for a substitute for their opioid addiction. Now with the influx of more refined Heroin, it has taken the drug out of the street level and into the suburbs of the state.
Treating heroin addiction in Idaho will involve many steps to make the recovery process effective. For most people, there will be a need for a medical detox
to alleviate the symptoms of Heroin withdrawal.
Heroin addiction can sometimes include other drugs so it is very important to make sure that you disclose all of the drugs you are currently using and have taken in the past 6 months. This will help the detox center for heroin addiction, better diagnose and prescribe the best medications to make your detox go smoothly and as pain-free as possible. Do not try to detox on your own. Heroin withdrawal can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the length of heroin use and the amount of heroin being abused on a daily basis. 1-800-819-9973
Detox should be followed by an extensive stay at a Heroin Inpatient treatment program. Private Inpatient drug rehabs
offer the best results for long-lasting sobriety from a Heroin addiction.
Most of the people who have fought with heroin addiction have one thing in common: They recovered from their addiction at an inpatient heroin rehab center. Some people can find sobriety in an outpatient treatment program but due to the temptations and availability to go find heroin, this type of program is less effective in treating the addiction as a whole. The typical stay for someone recovering from a heroin addiction can vary from center to center and usually consists of 30-90 day programs. 1-800-819-9973
Heroin addiction medications and uses
Sometimes a medical intervention can be used to help wean a person off of heroin at a slower rate, alleviating the withdrawal symptoms normally associated with a Heroin Detox.
Buprenorphine: Being an opioid, Buprenorphine accesses the same receptors in the brain that heroin interacts with. This allows for a seemingly painless transition while managing cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Methadone: Over the last few decades, this drug has become a bit controversial due to the fact that the body can build up a tolerance quickly if taken to often and is under investigation for being potentially addictive. Methadone is considerably stronger than Buprenorphine but works in the same manner, offering alleviated symptoms from withdrawal.
Naltrexone: Designed to block opioid receptors, blocking the effects that would normally take place once Heroin or an opioid is entered into the system. Also used in treating alcoholism.
Specifically designed to work in combination with Buprenorphine and Naltrexone. This combination of drugs not only manages the addiction, it also alleviates the temptation to use heroin due to the opioid-blocking drug Naltrexone.

Not all heroin rehabs are the same. Some will offer medical detox options while others will have a person tough out their withdrawal. We have found that a 90-day heroin rehab can offer the best results for long-lasting sobriety. Finding addiction treatment that not only heals the body but also heals the mind as well, will be the difference between success and failure.
Too often, once heroin addicts go through the detox process, find themselves not wanting to go through with treatment or want to have one more romance with the drug before entering rehab for their addiction to Heroin. We strongly urge people to find a treatment program that is at least a long drive away from home, to make the person have a chance to think about leaving a program before they make a seriously bad decision to leave before the heroin rehab is completed.
