Heroin addiction is rising dramatically in Kentucky as the state cracks down on prescription medication abuse
. Once a person has developed an addiction to pain medications, there is a good chance that they will not be able to afford their much-needed opioids at a street-level price.

Heroin Detox Centers in Kentucky
Treating heroin addiction in Kentucky 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.
Inpatient Heroin Rehabs
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 heroin addiction can vary from center to center and usually consists of 30-90 day programs.
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 treatment for heroin addiction that not only heals the body but also heals the mind as well will be the difference between success and failure.
Heroin addicts, too often find that once they 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 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.
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 too 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, but it also alleviates the temptation to use heroin due to the opioid-blocking drug Naltrexone.
