Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin Addiction

In 2015, the state of Tennessee saw more than 1,100 cases of heroin use. Tennessee also has more opioid prescriptions than there are people to fill them, increasing access and availability of drugs such a heroin in urban, rural, and suburban areas. Heroin is made from morphine. It is the most popular of all opiate drugs thanks to how cheap and fast-acting it is. The drug is popular as a means of providing euphoric sensations, but heroin use can lead to permanent health problems and even death. Risks of heroin use include:

  • Abscesses
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
  • Collapsed veins
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Bacterial infections
  • Organ Damage
  • Pneumonia
  • And more

Heroin causes both physical and psychological addiction and dependence. Detox alone cannot account for the multiple aspects involved in addiction. Effective heroin addiction treatment fights substance abuse at the source, not only ending physical dependence on the drug, but allowing individuals to process the mental, psychological, emotional, and behavioral aspects linked to drug use.

An estimated one-fourth of all heroin users will become dependent on the drug. At Freeman Recovery Center, we help men and women struggling with heroin addiction find lifelong recovery.
