Heroin is one of the most deadliest and most popular drugs on the street. The heroin is SO addictive (and expensive) that a once wealthy Hollywood dealer staged 64 bank robberies to pay for the heroin, which cost $800 a day. It is extremely addictive and fatal. Just like any poison, it will slowly kill the user. The horrible drug is powerful and it affects the two major aspects of the body. First it numbs the body. Then it puts the body into a dream-like state. The user usually finds him/her-self seeing hallocutions. It is difficult to get rid of the addiction and if you find help, the detox is VERY painful.
There are many different stages of treatment. The first stage is the detox (withdrawal). The withdrawal can be fatal and painful. A detox is a difficult process. The detox is usually ridden with lots of anxiety. But no worries! The Spencer recovery center will monitor the heart rate and vital signs so they will know if something goes wrong. The center’s staff will and can do ANYTHING to make the detox tolerable. Afterwards the patient will be put on a nutritional plan. This plan will assist the patient’s body. The best pharmaceuticals carefully plan the meal so the patient will get all the nutrients he/she needs.
The second stage of treatment is to rebuild the spirit after detox. This is done with heroin treatment therapy. There are also three counseling. The first counsel is group counseling. There is also one-on-one counseling and family counseling.
The third stage of treatment is to rebuild the mind. The mind is like a muscle… it can be built by exercise. This is the MOST important aspect. By articulating patients’ feelings, the mind is forced to exercise.
The effects of heroin are horrible. The effects aren’t just physical… they’re emotional too. First the muscles begin to atrophy. Then the body begins to wither. Next, the mind doesn’t function properly. The addict is no longer able to make a clear decision. Also, the addict can’t ingest/digest correctly. Usually the drug deceives the user into thinking that the drug isn’t really harming his/her body. That is one of the reasons why heroin is dangerous.
