Dual Diagnosis Treatment Fort Lauderdale

Heroin addiction can be fatal, claiming thousands of lives every year. It’s no longer exclusive to veteran addicts, for even suburban teenagers have begun to experiment with the drug. In-patient treatment is almost always necessary to overcome heroin addiction.

Heroin comes from the poppy plant. In the past, it was used as a pain management drug, until doctors and patients realized how addictive it could be. All it takes is one hit for the brain to become hooked.

Heroin can be injected, snorted or smoked. No matter how you ingest it, it will enter the bloodstream and cause instant feelings of euphoria, and then drowsiness. Long-term heroin use leads to liver and kidney disease, infection and lung complications. Heroin overdose is a major risk as well, since it’s difficult to determine whether the drug has been laced with other substances.

Heroin addicts should not lose hope. In order to treat heroin addiction, patients must go through intensive therapy and counseling. Florida Addiction & Recovery Center features heroin addiction treatment programs with teams of addiction professionals, therapists and counselors to support users on their journey to long-term recovery. Our caring staff members work with clients to address the root causes of addiction; they understand that there is more to overcome than the symptoms alone. Ultimately, our goal is to help individuals and their loved ones build the foundation for lasting recovery.

Our Certified Substance Abuse Counselor caseloads are developed in a way that will maximize the effectiveness of the treatment experience.

Our staff will monitor clients’ progress, while our therapists will incorporate a variety of techniques to help them address the root of their addiction.

At our luxury treatment center, our goal is to help clients understand the implications of their addiction, and to present solutions for any corresponding biological, psychological, sociological, emotional and spiritual issues.
