Heroin Addiction Treatment Programs in Tennessee

When searching for rehab centers in Tennesse, it is important to remember that not all heroin rehabs are the same. Some rehab programs will offer medical detox options while others will have a person tough out their withdrawal on their own. We have found that a 90-day heroin rehab can offer the best results for long-lasting sobriety. Finding the treatment that not only heals the body but also heals the mind, will be the difference between success and failure. 

Heroin addicts too often find that once they have gone 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. 

When you make the choice to start a life without heroin, it can be a life-changing decision, that will have many short-term consequences that need to be addressed first. This is the main reason that researching your treatment options is very important. Finding a program that will handle all of the addiction issues that need to be addressed, can be difficult if you are not informed as to the different types of treatment available for heroin and opiate addiction.

How long should a heroin rehab take?

There are many variables to take into account to properly answer this question, and it can depend on a number of situations. Treatment has to start with the individual. The addict must be assessed in order to get the whole picture of the addiction and all of its subsequent parts. We must look at the length of the addiction, the types of drugs used, the frequency of usage, and physical dependence. These answers can give our counselors a good understanding of what it should take to recover from your Heroin addiction. Some programs will offer outpatient treatment for addiction and other rehab centers will have short-term drug rehab options and long-term heroin addiction treatment rehabs.

Heroin addiction is reaching an epidemic the country, with Mexico producing 50% more heroin than they have in previous years. This ramp-up in heroin production is due in part to medical marijuana and legal marijuana in the United States cutting into their illegal drug trade. This has made the cartels shift their focus towards harder drugs to maintain their profitability. There has also been a significant improvement in Mexican heroin purity which has brought the drug more into the mainstream due to its new white powder form.

Do not wait to get someone help for their heroin addiction with the unknown purity of the heroin coming in from Mexico. What gets someone high today could kill someone tomorrow the fluctuations in purity are the reason that the overdose rate is skyrocketing throughout the state. 

There has been a huge spike in Fentanyl addiction and overdoses in Tennessee reported by special agent John De Lena of the DEA. They have reported that in the past, there was Fentanyl-laced heroin on the streets but the trend has shifted to heroin laced Fentanyl making for a dangerous cocktail that has been labeled as China White, a more pure form of heroin usually imported from China and southeast Asia.

Treating heroin addiction in Tennessee 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.

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.

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