imprisons its victims in a world that seems inescapable, even after successful heroin detox
treatment. Opiate cravings
lead them to believe they can have “just a little” heroin since the body is cleansed. For many, outpatient heroin treatment helps them to avoid relapse by dealing with life issues. And for those who have work and family obligations, there is the option of online drug treatment
cleanses the body of alcohol and drugs, and is only the beginning of successful treatment. So the physical battle with heroin addiction may be over, but heroin cravings
and psycho-social factors remain. The addicted brain sends a multitude of signals to the body, telling it that it either needs heroin to survive or that it won’t hurt to use a small amount. The signal offers a sense of relief from all the obsessive thoughts in the addict’s mind. Relapse is often the result.
helps to ease the mental obsession for the drug, and get past the cravings. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
may also help with opiate cravings. Residential treatment
is very effective, and outpatient treatment
works in many cases as well. Some individuals, though, may have time or travel hindrances that make it difficult to attend outpatient sessions regularly. For them, telemedicine
is a welcomed solution.
As an example, a young male husband and parent is on his final two days of opiate detox
. He desperately wants to change his life and enter treatment. He feels a need to get a job and support the family he had neglected, and declines residential treatment. While he is willing to enter outpatient treatment, he can’t afford the travel costs and worries that it will interfere with a new job. Without another option, he is likely to attempt recovery without treatment and is sure to relapse.
