Heroin Addiction Treatment

Made from morphine, heroin is a highly addictive and dangerous drug, which can be injected, snorted, or smoked. When people take heroin, they usually experience a “high” in which they feel contentment, reducing anxiety and relieving tension.

Unfortunately, those who become addicted to heroin can’t feel normal without it because their brains are unable to produce these natural feel-good chemicals on their own. Heroin addiction often results in short and long-term problems such as dry mouth, the inability to focus, low blood pressure, cognitive damage, heart damage, lung problems, liver or kidney disease, and overdose potential. 

At Compassion Behavioral Health, we help those who are addicted to heroin lead higher-quality lives, without heroin. With us, you may receive the medical supervision you need to safely detoxify.
