Heroin Addiction / Opioid Addiction Treatment
Heroin and Opiate Detox is Dangerous and Potential Lethal
Detoxification, commonly referred to as “Detox” is the process by which the body clears itself of the drugs. At New Perspective Recovery we have designed our program to manage the acute and potentially dangerous physiological effects of stopping heroin and opiate drug use. Detoxification deals specifically with the physically aspect of addiction and does not address the psychological, social and behavioral problems associated with addiction and abuse. Detox will not not produce lasting behavioral changes necessary for the addict to sustain recovery. Since heroin and opiate detox is often accompanied by unpleasant and potentially fatal side effects stemming from withdrawal, detox is managed with medications. Some individuals can detox alone, but others need to be assisted.
Call us at 800-901-1841 so that we can help determine the best detox process for you or your loved one.

Appropriate Addiction Treatment
The addict has learned how to function in their dysfunction. A good treatment program teaches how to function fully without the crutch of their drug of choice. Treatment is simple compared to the long, complicated path of full-blown addiction. The vast majority of addicts have trauma induced shame and blame as the cause of their need to self sooth with drugs or alcohol. Self soothing keeps the frightening, hurtful thoughts and feelings at bay – for a while.
Appropriate addiction treatment puts the past in the past where it belongs. Treatment infuses hope and a belief that the Resident deserves to be loved, appreciated – that they deserve a fully functional life in the light, rather than a life full of shame, pain, blame in the shadows of society.
