Los Angeles Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin’s intense withdrawal symptoms make it one of the most difficult drugs to quit on your own. Users will experience nausea, abdominal pain, sweating, shaking, agitation, cravings, and spasms, which only worsen the longer someone has been using heroin. For this reason, those who are dependent on heroin can greatly benefit from medically-supervised detox.

Medically-supervised detox means that clinicians will oversee your withdrawal and ease its symptoms with a variety of medications and therapies. This gives you an easier detox experience that is both safer and more comfortable. Heroin addiction can negatively impact every area of your life— from your physical health to your relationships with friends and family. Detox is the first step to sobriety, and it’s critically important that you detox under medical supervision. A detox under our clinical team can help you put the best foot forward towards lasting recovery.

Heroin Detox Medications

Based on their history of substance use, some patients require medication to manage symptoms of withdrawal during the early stages of detoxification. Our staff of clinicians carefully monitor dosages and administered drugs to ease your heroin detox experience.

The detox process can be uncomfortable, often depending on your genetic makeup and the level of your prior drug use. The purpose of any prescribed comfort medications is to ease these symptoms. This is one of the primary reasons why a medically supervised detox is superior to a detox that’s done at home. When attempting detox at home, comfort medications won’t be available— making the detox process so much harder than it needs to be.

What Happens After Heroin Detox?

Detoxing your system of heroin is just the first step to sobriety. While your body may be free of the drug, your mind is still wholly dependent on its influences. Many people may not know that addiction is a disease of the brain – the brain’s reward system is completely rewired by the use of heroin, and therefore it takes time and effort to ensure total sobriety.

Concise Recovery offers a variety of treatment options upon conclusion of heroin detox. Most of our patients require inpatient, or residential, treatment in one of our centers, while others may opt for intensive outpatient programming. Speak to one of our admissions staff members to determine what’s right for you.

Don't wait another day. Escape addiction & find freedom.

You have questions. We have answers. Find the most commonly asked questions and answers below

You can begin the first step to healing by reaching out to Concise Recovery. Our staff is made up of addiction treatment specialists who are dedicated to your recovery journey. Contact us today at 1-866-256-3464 to learn more.

Most insurance will pay for rehabilitation. Concise Recovery works with most PPO & POS insurance policies that offer out-of-network benefits. We currently do not accept Medi-Cal or Medicare. Contact our staff today to learn how you can verify your insurance.

Dual disorders, or co-occurring disorders, happen when a person suffers from a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder. The two disorders often feed into one another, creating a vicious cycle that may feel impossible to break. Dual diagnosis is the process of diagnosing both disorders and creating a treatment plan to address them simultaneously. Since a mental health disorder can contribute to addiction and vice versa, both issues must be addressed together to achieve lasting recovery.

After patients have completed the rehabilitation process with Concise Recovery, they have the option of residing in our sober living community. Sober living allows a person to transition back into daily life while living in a safe location free of addictive substances. Residents in sober living communities are expected to look after themselves and keep up with responsibilities such as paying rent, completing chores, and abiding by a curfew.

Relapse is a very common part of the recovery journey. Research has shown that more than half of those who complete rehab treatment for drug or alcohol addiction will relapse within the first year. However, relapsing does not mean you have failed, and with Concise Recovery’s continuous care through our sober living program, you can achieve long-term recovery and keep control over your lifestyle.

Inpatient rehabilitation, or residential treatment, means that patients reside at an addiction treatment facility for a set length of time. With inpatient care, patients have 24/7 access to recovery specialists and can heal in a safe and controlled environment. Outpatient care is when patients receive addiction treatment services but can still return to the comfort of their own homes at the end of the day. Outpatient care allows patients to have a more flexible schedule and still live their daily life outside of a treatment center.

The rehabilitation process can vary depending on your needs and the best timeline to suit your healing. Most addiction rehabilitation programs vary in length from 30-day programs to 60-days to 90-days. Contact us to learn more.

At Concise Recovery, you will start your healing journey with one of our accredited sub-acute detox programs, which take place in luxurious, private facilities, staffed by industry experts. From there, our team will create an individualized treatment plan to best fit your recovery needs. Addiction recovery can include inpatient care, outpatient care, therapies, and aftercare through our sober living program.
