Seeking detox may be just the thing that saves your life. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 8,200 individuals dying from heroin overdose in 2013 alone—nearly 4 times the number of overdose fatalities reported in 2002.
At Cedar Oaks Wellness Center, our Cincinnati team is committed to providing our patients with safety and security, and our heroin detox program can treat your unique symptoms throughout the detoxification process. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible during what is, for many, a challenging and laborious time. After you’ve fully detoxed, we can then recommend a plan of action for you depending on your needs and goals.

Known as an extremely potent opiate, heroin acts on your brain’s reward system to produce dopamine and endorphins and give you pleasurable feelings like reduced anxiety, drowsiness, and general contentment, and this rush can act quickly and last for four to five hours at a time.
However, there are many dangers both short and long-term that come with abusing heroin. Some of these include:
In addition to these negative health effects, long-term heroin addiction also changes your brain chemistry over time. These changes can make it much harder for a person to stop using heroin without professional help, and it can make you feel powerless. Even when a person’s life is falling apart and they begin losing control over things like employment and relationships, it can feel impossible for someone with an addiction to stop using.
Not all withdrawal symptoms are the same. People experience different symptoms depending on the drug they’re addicted to, how long they’ve been addicted, and how serious their addiction is. You’re likely to experience flu-like symptoms when you’re withdrawing from heroin, and the initial comedown can last for a week, though it’s common for individuals to feel the effects long after detoxification is complete.
Some common heroin withdrawal symptoms include:
Some people take a look at the list of symptoms and determine that they’d be safe in detoxing alone, but detoxing runs the risk of overdosing if an individual uses a large amount of heroin to ease their symptoms.
Your recovery begins with a simple phone call. Call us at 1-866-902-2994 – we can take care of the rest so you can concentrate on healing.
Our facility is equipped with a team of detox specialists who have treated all types of withdrawal symptoms, including those commonly associated with heroin addiction. In our program, we carefully design unique treatment plans for each patient so we know how to best stabilize you and create a more comfortable atmosphere for your detoxification process. We know that no two addictions are alike, and no two detox processes are the same, either.
You don’t have to fear for your life or future when you detox under the compassionate and careful watch of our team. We can ease your symptoms, keep you hydrated, and help you transition into inpatient when you’re ready to take the next step of your recovery.
Just like every person is different, so to is everyone’s journey of recovery. At Cedar Oaks Wellness Center we realize this, and work with you to take the first step wherever you are on your journey.
