Heroin Addiction

Heroin is an illegal, highly addictive narcotic derived from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the opium poppy. Highly pure heroin can be snorted or smoked and may be more appealing to new users because it eliminates the stigma associated with using a needle.

The impact of heroin use is felt all across the United States, with heroin being identified as the most important drug abuse issue affecting several local regions including the State of New Jersey.

When people addicted to heroin first quit, they undergo withdrawal symptoms, to greater or less degree. Medications can be very helpful during the detoxification phase because it can ease withdrawal symptoms and quell drug cravings. While heroin detox is not a treatment for addiction itself, it is a useful first step, especially when it is followed by behavioral-based treatment.

The Garden State has a huge heroin epidemic

Heroin addiction has exploded across the State of New Jersey in what can only be described as a heroin addiction epidemic. The problem extends beyond the big cities and the State Capital of Trenton. We know that heroin is coming through Trenton and Pennsylvania in numbers never seen before. It is affecting people from every background and every walk of life. It’s affecting every county in New Jersey, particularly in larger cities of Newark, Jersey City, Patterson and Elizabeth.

Heroin use is extremely addictive and nearly 1 in 4 new heroin users becomes addicted. Once heroin addiction has developed, users stop at almost nothing to obtain heroin even if it means risking their job, damaging relationships, sharing needles and going to jail. This is a chronic-use disorder and short-term heroin addiction treatment centers are usually insufficient. For many heroin addicts, treatment must be a long-term process. Studies have found that treatment centers using long-term treatment approaches have the highest rate of heroin addiction recovery.



How to stop using heroin

Nearly all people addicted to heroin believed at the outset that they could stop whenever they wanted. Most heroin addicts try to stop on their own without treatment and some people are successful, but many attempts result in failure to achieve long-term abstinence. The best way that we know to recover from heroin addiction is in a residential campus. Optimally, in a treatment program lasting 90-days or longer. We know that inpatient treatment centers that use a long-term comprehensive treatment approach have the highest rates of recovery.
