How to overcome a heroin or painkiller addiction in opiate rehab

Heroin and painkiller addiction are a couple nasty habits and this may be putting it bit mildly. Are you tired of spending all of your hard earned money on heroin and other opiate painkillers? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? If so, maybe you need to think of some ways of how you can stop using painkillers.

Actually there are several ways that a person can quit using drugs. Probably the best way for most people is going to some type of drug rehab. Now again there are many different types are rehabs in the few that would to be addicted to opiates you'll probably want to find a rehab that specializes in opiate addiction.

Once you determine what type are rehab you need you are also going to have to figure out whether you need your every day run of the mill drug rehab or are you going to need a rehab that can medically detox you from heroin or other opiate medications like OxyContin, Vicodin, or Percocet.

How you can beat pain pills addiction

Don't be confused detoxing from prescription medications can be just as difficult is trying to come off heroin. I know this to be true because I have detox him several different opiate medications. So if you want to be as comfortable as possible when going through opiate or her own withdrawal I would definitely choose the medical detox route.

If you choose this method you will be looked after by a staff of trained professionals. They will be there for you around-the-clock seven days a week to make you as comfortable as possible during your painkiller withdrawal. They will also administer other prescription medications to help ease the pain and discomfort caused by your heroin or opiate withdrawal symptoms. In most cases the entire detox process will take a little less than a week. Now keep in mind that once this process is completed the next step is residential treatment.

In residential treatment you will be around many other addicts and alcoholics just like yourself that are trying to learn how to overcome an addiction to prescription medications as well as an addiction to heroin or alcohol. While there you will be required to attend lectures, 12 step programs like narcotics anonymous, group therapy, one-on-one substance abuse counseling, and videos about addiction.

Back in the day when I first started getting clean and sober residential treatment was like 28 days. Now due to insurance policies and whatnot the maximum stays more like 10 to 14 days. This is not a very long time for an addict to learn all that they need to know about how to stay clean once they leave substance abuse treatment. It would be my recommendation that you pay very close attention to what the counselors and staff are trying to teach you because whether you realize it or not your life depends on it.

Recovery is not a game you are not there to start a new relationship and as a matter of fact relationships that start in rehab will not work. Trust me I've tried that too. One of you always end up using and the other will follow soon after. Then you are right back in the same boat needing to get clean again. The reason I'm telling you all this is so that you can avoid the mistakes that I made.

Good luck
