Detoxing from Heroin Without Medical Supervision Can be Deadly

1The physical and emotional effects of detoxing is excruciating and should never be attempted on one’s own.

Why is Heroin Withdrawal Deadly?

The withdrawal from heroin itself will not cause death, however, as with many drugs and medications, abstaining for any period of time significantly lowers a person’s level of tolerance. Detoxing on your own, without the assistance of a trained medical team and safe detoxification environment, almost invariably leads to relapse. Most heroin users who die, do so from overdosing after they’ve attempted to self-detox.

How Can I Detox Safely?

Medications help reduce or eliminate cravings, ease anxiety, and help the individual transition more gently from an abrupt cessation from using. A medically-supervised and long-term prescription regimen is almost always required to alleviate the symptoms associated with heroin detoxification and allows the individual to gradually achieve full abstinence. These tapering medications are only administered by clinical professionals and approved treatment programs.
An accredited detox facility provides the care necessary for a safe withdrawal process. The process includes an individually prescribed and medically supervised detox program, a team of therapists to manage physical and emotional conditions, as well as a nurturing and safe environment, complete with the comforts of home, without the risk of relapse.

What Do I Do After I Detox?

After completing a detox, relapse rates range from 65% to 80% just one month after completion. However, those who remained in a treatment program were up to 10 times more likely to maintain abstinence. It is crucial to plan a post-detox treatment plan and consider an in-patient program to sustain the best chance for long-term recovery.
