Heroin Addiction

Call 07976247833

We work with a number of different patients who are struggling with heroin or methadone addiction. These drugs are highly addictive and use of them can quickly spiral out of control, until a user has a physical dependency on them. It is very rare to find a “social” heroin or methadone user. Our patients frequently find that they have struggled to manage their addictions simply by using NHS services and so turn to us for other treatment and support options.

At Recover Now, we can help find a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. We provide confidential, impartial advice on the treatment options for your heroin addiction, and we will ensure you get the best available help for you.

We will work with you to help you understand and overcome your addiction and plan for the future.

The earlier you act, the better, so call us today.

What is a heroin or methadone addiction?
Heroin and methadone addiction is similar to addiction any other opiate, in so much that people will develop an emotional and physical dependency on the drug when it is administered over a period of time. The onset of addiction can be both rapid and severe. Most people who use these drugs are dependent upon them and will suffer painful withdrawal symptoms if they do not get their ‘fix’ or dose.

Patients can be offered prescriptions for methadone and buprenorphine, with the goal of replacing the heroin. However, addicts often find that they are using heroin on top of their prescription or that they are merely substituting one addiction for another.

These ‘replacement’ drugs are equally addictive, as heroin and patients will experience withdrawal symptoms if they try to cease using them straight away. Naltrexone is a drug that blocks the effects of opiates and is also used in some treatment programmes.

Signs and symptoms of heroin or methadone addiction:
  • Reclusive behavior – long periods spent in self imposed isolation
  • Long, unexplained absences
  • Lying and stealing
  • Involvement on the wrong side of the law
  • Deteriorating family relationships
  • Obvious intoxication, deliriousness, incoherency or unconsciousness
  • Decrease in school performance
  • Drug paraphernalia
