Heroin Addiction Treatment and Rehab Announced by Recovery Associates, Offering Drug Treatment for Those Addicted to Heroin or Morphine
Date:5/10/2013

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

Recovery Associates, through its multiple therapeutic tracks, is placing an emphasis upon heroin addiction treatment, helping men and women break free from this harrowing, potent drug. Heroin turns normal, functioning people into walking zombies and can leave them with withdrawn eyes, needle marks along their arms, and mental instability. Making a normal life all but impossible.

Heroin is an opioid drug synthesized from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky substance, known as “black tar heroin.”

Research from the National Institute on Drug Abuse indicates that in 2011, 4.2 million Americans aged 12 or older (or 1.6 percent) had used heroin at least once in their lives. It is estimated that about 23 percent of individuals who use heroin become dependent on it. To learn more visit this link here: http://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/heroin.

Heroin drug abuse is associated with a number of serious health conditions, including fatal overdose, spontaneous abortion, and infectious diseases like hepatitis and HIV. Chronic users may develop collapsed veins, infection of the heart lining and valves, abscesses, constipation and gastrointestinal cramping, and liver or kidney disease. Pulmonary complications, including various types of pneumonia, may result from the poor health of the user as well as from heroin’s effects on breathing.

Recovery Associates is a drug and alcohol treatment center that provides a variety of programs and services for men, women and teens struggling with chemical dependency issues. At the core of their philosophy is the belief that addiction is a treatable illness. Their addiction treatment experience has shown that anyone is capable of achieving lasting recovery and physical, mental and spiritual freedom from the disease of addiction.

Their unique program offers three different tracks: a Traditional Track, an Expressive Therapies Track, Teen Rehab Track, and a Christian Rehab Track. They believe that by utilizing a variety of therapies they can better assist their clients in finding their own individualized path to recovery. Their focus is on the underlying issues that have led to the addictive behaviors and destructive patterns. They can also help out with long term care and finding the best halfway house to continue recovery in aftercare.

Recovery Associates’ multidisciplinary team is made up of a Board Certified Addictions Psychiatrist, Master’s Level Therapists and Certified Addictions Counselors. They are passionate about recovery and helping individuals and families begin the healing process from drug and alcohol addiction.
