Addiction No More: The Heroin Addiction Help Line for Texas
With the recent crackdown on doctors prescribing too many painkillers, there has been a significant rise in the cost of obtaining these opioid pills. This has led to the resurgence of heroin addiction as a cheaper alternative to pain-killer addiction in the state of Texas.
Heroin addiction and treatment programs in Texas
We have compiled a list of reputable treatment programs that specialize in the treatment for heroin addiction. The resurgence of heroin addiction has made a huge impact on the availability of state-funded treatment beds in the state. For long-term recovery, we recommend that a person goes through a medical type detox, if needed, followed up by a 45-90 day treatment program for heroin addiction. Recent studies show that a person that goes through an intensive 90-day program will have a considerably higher chance of remaining heroin free.
Our counselors are standing by to point you in the right direction. Give us a call and start the recovery process today.
Treating heroin addiction in Texas 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.
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. 1-800-819-9973
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.

A new study shows that the heroin epidemic is even worse than it was previously diagnosed throughout the state of Texas. Heroin is reportedly easier to get than wine, and less expensive that beer in the rural regions of the state. The epidemic that is sweeping the nation is due, in part, to the nationwide crackdown on prescription medication availability. With prices for a single dose of heroin between 5 and 10 dollars, in rural areas, it has become easier and cheaper than buying a six-pack of beer for young kids. Drug dealers do not have an age requirement for people wanting to buy their drugs so the access to it has become easier than finding someone to buy alcohol.
Treatment and education are the only way to reduce the overdose rates in Texas.
Overdose rates in Texas have surpassed the previous record set in 1998 and 1999 when the epidemic was at its peak. We are seeing more Fentanyl addiction in the state and people are actually actively seeking out the much cheaper alternative to quell their withdrawal symptoms.
Fentanyl is becoming a great concern in the state due to the newly established Fentanyl production facilities in Mexico. The Mexican cartels have been using their vast drug trafficking networks to smuggle and distribute heroin and Fentanyl to the streets of the United States. A good portion of these drugs land right here in Texas.
For more information and treatment programs, please give us a call and we can discuss more options in your area for heroin rehab. Not all centers are the same and their treatment can vary from center to center. If you are looking for a specific program or therapy type that you feel will work for your specific case, give us a call and we can help you locate the best treatment center for heroin addiction in the state of Texas.
