Begin Your Recovery with Heroin Addiction TreatmentAs one of the most worrisome of all opioids due to its addictive nature, heroin can quickly take over a person’s life. It impacts relationships, work, school, and even self-worth. What makes it even more complex is that it’s so challenging to stop using. That’s because heroin interacts with the brain’s pleasure sensor. Over time, the brain craves more of the substances because of the changes the drug creates. That creates dependence, a condition that’s only treated by detox. In heroin detox treatment at Fort Behavioral Health, it’s possible to free yourself of this drug’s control.
Men’s Specific Heroin Addiction Treatment Makes SenseFor men battling heroin addiction, treatment is often beneficial when surrounded by other men going through the same feelings and experiences. A men’s only program can offer a range of benefits, including:
- No distractions from the opposite gender
- Treatment that’s presented in a way that you’ll learn the best
- Fewer cultural and gender-specific concerns – speak freely
- More opportunities to connect with other men who are facing the same challenges
- More comfort to allow you to open up and engage in therapy
Where Treatment Starts for MenMany men with heroin addiction need to start with detox. During the detox process at Fort Behavioral Health, the body processes and safely removes the substance. What’s unique about detox programs is that they offer a safe place for you to detox where medical help is available to support the process. This can minimize many of the risks you face during detox, including the risk of irregular heartbeats and a drop in respiration. Also, during detox in a program like this, you’ll feel fewer withdrawal symptoms. For heroin, that often includes pain, abdominal pain, insomnia, and agitation. You’ll also experience fewer cravings, which means detoxing may be a bit easier.
