Treating heroin addiction in Maine 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 rehabs that we have a working relationship with, will take most major insurance carriers, and work with affordable healthcare insurance plans.  Private health insurance coverage can vary from policy to policy, depending on the plan chosen. It is best to get your insurance verified before entering into treatment to make sure that the out-of-pocket expense for the drug rehab center is manageable for the client. Give us a call and we can get your insurance verified and go over some options for treatment to ensure the least possible out-of-pocket expense for drug rehab. 

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.

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 also alleviates the temptation to use heroin due to the opioid-blocking drug Naltrexone. 

*To locate a doctor that can prescribe medications for a painless withdrawal, please give us a call and we will help you find the closest addiction doctor to you in Maine.

Maine Drug Addiction Stats

One of the main reasons that Maine is having a heroin epidemic is that the recent crackdown on prescription medications and the changing of the pills to make them harder to crush and snort for a quick high. This is the main contributing factor to the rapid rise in heroin addiction in Maine. The market is flooded with high-quality, low-cost heroin coming up from New York. A 6 dollar bag of heroin in New York can fetch as much as 40 dollars in northern New England regions. This gives a hefty profit margin for dealers looking to cash in on the recent heroin problem, making the problem even worse.
