WA TREATMENT FACTS
- Heavy heroin users experience a peak in their withdrawal symptoms between 48 and 72 hours after the last dose, according to the Center for Substance Abuse Research. Though heroin withdrawal usually only lasts about a week or so, a person should not go through it without some sort of pharmacological treatment.
- Some opioid addicts are afraid to enter treatment because they are worried they will be shamed for their substance abuse, but this is absolutely not the goal of treatment. Instead, caregivers attempt to help the patient feel positively about themselves and their future in order to create positive change.
- Many people choose private rehab programs for their recovery because they do not want others to know that they are in need of substance abuse help.
- Buprenorphine is usually paired with naloxone as a maintenance treatment. This protects it from abuse because those who attempt to crush and snort the drug will experience immediate withdrawal effects caused by the naloxone.
