Although the length of detox and treatment plans vary amongst heroin users, substance rehabilitation programs provide a safe, secure environment for you to recover from your addiction. It can be daunting to seek treatment for yourself or a loved one if you don’t know what to expect from the process. Although the specifics of a program will vary among facilities, the following can provide some guidelines to help familiarize you with the process:

  • When entering a drug abuse rehab center, an initial screening and comprehensive assessment by an intake counselor will take place where you will be asked questions regarding your mental and physical health, as well as your history of drug use. Based on the information provided to them, the staff will craft a personalized recovery plan for you.
  • The next phase might be medical detox, with the goal to manage your withdrawal symptoms when you quit your substance(s) of abuse and/or help you undergo a careful taper. The length and intensity of detox varies, depending on the regular dose, duration of use, and other factors.
  • Ideally, you will continue treatment after you complete detox. Many detox programs are part of larger rehabs, but those that aren’t may help transfer you to an inpatient or outpatient program. In continuing treatment, you are likely to participate in individual behavioral therapy, group therapy, or a combination of the two.
  • Some programs will offer medications (e.g., methadone or buprenorphine) to those in recovery who have been deemed appropriate candidates for medication-assisted treatment.
  • Rehab centers typically have rules that you must follow, including complying with drug testing regulations and not leaving the property without staff approval.
  • Upon completion of the treatment program, aftercare services will follow to help ease the transition back into the community and lower the risk of relapse.

Before recovery can commence, the body must be cleaned of the abused substance. This is known as detoxification. Alcohol and the majority of drugs will leave the addicted person with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to getting the substance. Medical detox can minimize the discomfort for anyone seeking to get clean and sober.
