Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is processed from morphine, and is commonly available as white or brown powder. It can be injected, snorted, or smoked. Dallas has recently seen a rise in heroin addiction which has been accompanied by a marked increase in drug-related crime and deaths. Because of the many ports and highways in the state, heroin can easily enter Dallas , especially from South America.
For many, heroin addiction comes en route from painkiller dependence. Once a person gets hooked on prescription medications, the switch to heroin is the next logical step since the latter is cheaper, potent and widely available. Not to mention, heroin found on Dallas streets today is at least five times more pure than it was several decades ago. This results in instant addiction.
Among users of cocaine, an estimated 1.4 million are committed toward beating their addiction in the U.S. Can it be achieved or is there still a long way to go?
Due to the physical dependence created by abusing prescription medication, addiction treatment begins in a residential treatment facility. The initial phase of treatment is detox. It is here, under medical supervision, that the symptoms associated with withdrawal from prescription medication are managed, reduced and some times eliminated. The average length of time spent in detox is approximately seven days. During this time, the person will be monitored medically and any psychiatric or psychological issues will be assessed.
After the person is medically stable, they are generally referred to residential treatment to complete the treatment plan designed in detox. By the time most people enter treatment for prescription medication addiction, they have created quite a bit of emotional damage to themselves and loved ones. It takes time to recover from shame, grief, guilt, and rebuild a level of trust amongst the family. Recovery in a supportive therapeutic environment eliminates many of the outside distractions and allows a person to focus on issues relating to their recovery. The length of stay is approximately twenty days and may be followed by outpatient therapy.
