When you really think about it, the question “what is rehab like?” has more than just one answer. What works for one person will not necessarily work for another, and that’s why we offer a personalized approach to heroin withdrawal symptoms.
In general, though, most of what people find offers them success fits into two categories: 12 step programs and alternative methods. The examples of these that come immediately to mind are Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
Both have their pros and cons, but they do tend to be quite effective at helping people overcome their addictions. They also have a spiritual or religious element which some can take or leave as they see fit.
However, many who have found failure with AA or NA have reported success with other types of treatment, so keep an open mind.
In terms of heroin withdrawal symptoms, we know that there are a variety of things that can go wrong during detoxification from opiates or any drug for that matter. Some people experience relatively minor physical discomfort while others struggle mightily through severe pain and horrific psychological effects such as vivid hallucinations and delusions.
If this sounds sensational, let us assure you that it is not uncommon at all – especially when going cold turkey off these substances without medical assistance using a 12 step program as our example again. If you really don’t want to go down this route, many people search out alternative methods for drug addiction rehab, like the various herbal remedies which are said to lessen heroin withdrawal symptoms. Of course, this isn’t recommended unless you can check with your physician first.
