Should I Get Inpatient or Outpatient Care?
Inpatient rehab is a program in which patients stay on center grounds and are medically supervised at all times during treatment. Inpatient treatment has had great success in reducing the occurrence of relapses and often include both individual therapy and group therapy with other individuals at the treatment center.
With outpatient treatment options, individuals live in their own home and do their daily activities while attending treatment programs after-hours. Outpatient programs typically work for individuals that are committed to their recovery and have a strong support system. It requires discipline and important life and behavior changes, such as choosing to hang around people that remain sober.
What is Withdrawal?
Withdrawal is when the brain or body is deprived of a substance for a period of time, causing unpleasant symptoms. When an individual is addicted to heroin the brain becomes dependent on the substance. Without it, users often cannot function and experience headaches, nausea and vomiting, muscle spasms, anxiety, and agitation. They may also become irritable and hallucinate, and in severe cases, seizures may possibly occur.
How Long Does Detox Last?
Opioid withdrawal typically sets in about 6 to 12 hours after the last dose was administered. The worst part of heroin detox is day three when users report the worst of symptoms. Detox symptoms include difficulty breathing, nausea, cramping, excessive saliva, and more.
