What to Expect at a Heroin Addiction Treatment Center
Heroin addiction treatment is a wide range of medical, psychological and social services. These services are designed to help patients quit using heroin and recover from the negative effects of their addiction. When it comes to treating heroin addiction, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, each person needs individualized treatment tailored to their needs and preferences.
A variety of approaches can be used in heroin treatment, including:
Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization programs offer an alternative to residential heroin treatment that is less intense but still provides structure. Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) generally:
- Offer more intensive support than outpatient programs
- Run for four to six hours each day, five days a week
- Provide group therapy and individual counseling sessions
- Allow patients to continue living at home while getting treated
PHPs work best for people who need more intensive support than outpatient programs can provide, but who still require a flexible schedule.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are a type of outpatient treatment that offers a flexible schedule and can include multiple counseling sessions per week. They are intended for those who may not be able to attend full-day treatment but still need intensive care. They are also good options for people who have recently completed residential treatment and require more support as they transition back into everyday life.
Family therapy is an essential element of family therapy because family members understand and empathize with the patient’s experience. It is also an excellent method for educating family members about addiction and the recovery process. It can help the patient feel supported by loved ones.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Attain Behavioral Health understands that people struggling with heroin addiction are often self-medicating mental health issues. Our dual-diagnosis program assesses for any underlying mental health disorders that could be causing or contributing to the addiction.
Outpatient Heroin Addiction Treatment Center
Attain Behavioral Health offers an outpatient heroin addiction treatment center to help people learn how to manage their stress, cravings, and emotional triggers without relying on drugs. This treatment is a good option for those individuals who have completed residential treatment or cannot commit to a residential program.
Patients participate in individual and group therapy sessions and have access to family counseling programs, all under the guidance of certified and caring professionals.
