As Heroin overdose rates increasing at an alarming rate nationwide, Mississippi has not been left out of the equation. Mississippi has had more deaths due to a heroin overdose in the first 6 months of 2016 than the previous 6 years combined. There have been 13 deaths in the first 6 months of the year and on pace to reach 26-30 deaths from a heroin overdose by the year’s end. Between the years 2009 and 2011 there was only one death a year from a heroin overdose and has risen to 4 deaths in 2014. This is a dramatic increase in heroin-related deaths and if the trend continues, we will see even more deaths in the near future due to the availability of the drug.

Treating heroin addiction in Mississippi 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.
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.
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.
Suboxone: 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.
