Our Heroin Detox Program

It’s clear that heroin addiction is not only a complex physical, social and psychological problem, but also, approaches to treatment should take in to account the unique needs of each individual. Inland Detox helps our clients detox from heroin and/or prescription pain medication by following a detox protocol of stabilization, diminishing existing withdrawal symptoms and thoughtful counseling that leads to a long-term treatment plan after the detox process is complete.

The Difficult Nature of Heroin Detoxification

Many people find it quite difficult to “kick” heroin because the withdrawal symptoms are severe. Those that have been through the process report the same experiences: aches, pains (especially in the legs), extreme flu-like symptoms, stomach cramps, extreme craving to use heroin, sweating, excessive mucous production (runny nose), depression, diarrhea, low blood pressure and irritability. It’s no wonder why many people find themselves continuously using heroin: the withdrawal symptoms make you feel like you’re going to die. Due to the severity of withdrawals, it is prudent to seek out a heroin detox center rather than attempting to manage the symptoms on your own, as a detox center can provide a comfortable environment and professional management of your symptoms to ensure a more tolerable detox experience. Additionally, seeking out a heroin rehab to manage your detox will allow you to begin to address the underlying causes of addiction through counseling, helping you to begin the recovery process and start your sobriety on the right foot.

How Does The Detox Process Work?

When you arrive in southern California, you’ll be evaluated by a doctor to determine whether your condition is appropriate for clinical detox. While at Inland Detox, you will go through a process called stabilization; this entails going through the withdrawal process in a comfortable, quiet setting. Once your condition is stable, you will be referred for further treatment, generally in an inpatient residential setting.

Going Cold-Turkey

Going “cold-turkey” and winging heroin withdrawals on your own is quite often unsuccessful and extremely dangerous. People typically will not die from withdrawal symptoms, but if they have pre-existing health problems or if they use alcohol or other drugs at the same time as they use heroin, the process of going solo can be life threatening. In addition to the typical withdrawal symptoms associated with heroin, those who also use alcohol can experience seizures, delirium tremens, hallucinations, high-blood pressure, increased heart rate, and severe depression. Before you consider going “cold-turkey” please contact a health professional. Even if your withdrawal symptoms are not terribly severe, you will likely have a more comfortable experience going through them in a heroin treatment center than trying to manage them at home on your own.
