  • Heroin abuse can lead to a number of different issues on its own, but additional chemicals found in the drug can actually clog the blood vessels and create permanent damage to the organs (National Institute on Drug Abuse).
  • One should receive a full physical and psychological examination upon entering opioid rehab.
  • Individuals in rural areas sometimes have difficulty finding treatment programs close by or that suit their needs. In this case, it can be helpful to seek remote treatment for opioid addiction.
  • Some individuals need to revisit their treatment at different points in their lives, especially in the aftermath of a stressful or upsetting event like moving or the loss of a loved one.
  • Patients can learn a number of coping skills during rehab, which is incredibly important to recovery. These skills will allow someone to better cope with the triggers and stressors that, in the past, would have caused them to turn to substance abuse.
