Heroin use is a real problem in the US. Recent statistics show a 56% increase in users between 2007 and 2012 (Source: SAMHSA). More worrying still, the number of deaths due to heroin overdose has almost tripled in recent years (Source: CDC).
You probably don’t need much convincing as to the dangers of continued heroin addiction, the question is how are you going to escape this dangerous lifestyle?
Can you relate to the following quote?
“I don’t deal well with discomfort – especially when I know there is an easy way to escape it. This explains why most of my previous attempts at quitting heroin ended within 24 hours with me banging down the door of my dealer. I doubt I would ever have been able to quit if I hadn’t decided to enter an inpatient detox. I was supported and encouraged through every step of my detox from heroin, and there were medications to ease the withdrawal symptoms. It made all the difference.”

Successful Heroin Detox Means Matching Your Willingness With The Right Resources
The fact that you are reading this suggests that you are at least willing to consider the possibility of escaping opiate addiction. You can make this change happen, but it is important that you go about things the right way as this greatly increases your chances of success.
Your willingness to quit heroin is an opportunity that needs to be seized with as much tenacity and enthusiasm as possible. The risk is that if you don’t make the most of this opportunity to change, it will mean a slip back into continued addiction. In other words, your chance of a better life will be lost. By choosing a residential heroin detox, you greatly increase your chances of success.
Why You Need a Supervised Heroin Detox
Unsupervised heroin withdrawal is not only less likely to be successful, but it can also be dangerous. One of the biggest risks is that the person will relapse at the end of withdrawals because this can easily mean an overdose because their tolerance for the drug will have been reduced. There is also a danger of contents of the stomach ending up in the lungs (this is known as aspiration) during the withdrawal period.
The symptoms of heroin withdrawal are likely to be unpleasant, but it is the knowledge that a fix would make you feel better that makes them particularly hard to deal with. Not only will there be physical discomfort, but you are also likely to have your own thoughts working against you (e.g. just have one fix now, and you can try again tomorrow). Withdrawals are so much harder to deal with when you are alone with them, but there is no reason for why you need to be alone with them.

Wellness Residential Detox is by far one of the nicest detox centers in FL. They had a great staff to client ratio. Accommodations were spectacular and the place was clean! The staff was understanding, they conducted a few small groups throughout the day covering light material. Unlike a previous detox center, I went to that forced people to go to groups that were just way too complex for someone detoxing… Not the case with Wellness Detox they understood that people were just coming off drugs and alcohol. They didn’t push people over the edge but rather let everyone rest and heal. I’m satisfied with my detox and would recommend anyone looking to get clean and sober go to Wellness Residential Detox.
