Best Heroin Rehab in Miami | The Detox Center of LA

Heroin Rehab Near Me: Top Rated Heroin Rehab in Miami 

Suffering from heroin use disorder? Or maybe your loved one has a heroin addiction, and you don’t want to watch them slip away. While it can be tough to kick the habit on your own, getting help for addiction is a smart choice. You don’t have to spend the rest of your life using and thinking about using. Instead, you can get clean and start living the way you’ve always dreamed.

Help is a Phone Call Away

Best Heroin Rehab Center for Miami Residents

As you know, heroin is a highly addictive drug! That can make it hard for you to stop using it on your own. You may need to detox first to get rid of the drug. Heroin and other drugs cause the brain to change the way it makes certain neurochemicals. 

You’ll find it nearly impossible to work on recovery if you’re still using, which is why detox is so important for a lot of users. (Though not everyone needs to go to detox.) The important work starts after detoxification once the drug is gone. Then the process of understanding what led to the addiction, and preventing relapse, can begin. 

Types of Addiction Treatment for Heroin Addiction We Offer

Evidence-based treatment that’s been shown to help heroin users get clean (and stay clean!) is our specialty. Behavioral therapies are effective in helping you change your behaviors, thoughts, and feelings so you don’t have to use them. These therapies include cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. 

Instead of “blaming and shaming”, we provide solutions-based treatment so you can focus on what you need to do to stay clean. We believe that unearthing how you think about yourself and your addiction is important. That way unhelpful thoughts can be reframed, which is why we offer a relatively new intensive counseling practice known as psychodynamic therapy.

Many who suffer from heroin use disorder have also experienced trauma in their lives, whether in childhood or adulthood, or both. We provide trauma-informed therapy so that you’re not retraumatized in the process of kicking the heroin habit. Spiritual therapy is also one of our services so that you can heal emotionally as well as physically and mentally.

We also provide family therapy, because heroin doesn’t just affect its users, but also creates problems for the family. They come to understand the addiction and how they can help both themselves and their recovering family member.

Heroin Detox

For many users, detox is the first step in their journey to sobriety. Heroin withdrawal on your own can be an incredibly unpleasant experience (and sometimes even lethal). By attending a supervised detox, you can be more comfortable and less likely to have to use it again to stop the pain.

Symptoms can arise within a few hours of your last dose. They may include:

  • Watery eyes and runny nose
  • Cold sweats
  • Inability to get to sleep
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Restlessness or agitation
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Intense cravings
  • Cramps
  • Muscle aches
  • Muscle spasms, like uncontrollable leg kicking
  • Hallucinations
  • Thoughts of suicide

Inpatient Heroin Rehab

In general, if you need a supervised detox to kick your heroin habit safely, you’ll likely need to start treatment at an inpatient rehab. Treatment in a residential facility is highly structured, so you always know what you’re doing and don’t have a chance to get too hungry, angry, lonely, or tired (HALT). 

In addition to the addiction,  if you have a co-occurring mental health disorder, you’ll receive treatment for that too. You’ll be in therapy mornings and afternoons, whether those are a group or individual sessions. The evenings are usually set aside for games, socializing, and other activities. Peer support is a key component in staying clean. 

Everyone wakes up in the morning and goes to bed at night at the same time. You also eat nutritious meals at specific times with the rest of the community. Learning healthy habits and having a chance to instill them before you have to face the real world and all its triggers will help prevent relapse later on. You’ll be able to rely on your “muscle memory” when needed.

Outpatient Heroin Rehab

Outpatient treatment gives you the structure that you need while still allowing interaction with the outside world. Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are often the next step after inpatient rehab. The days are still structured, but you go home (which can be a sober living arrangement) after the day’s treatment. 

Some rehabs provide intensive outpatient programs (IOP) as well, which typically take place after work or school and on the weekends. At this stage, you need to be relatively healthy and ready to take on some responsibility for avoiding triggers and working on your recovery. General outpatient programs also give you more freedom while providing help and community.


How Long Is Heroin Rehab?

When you stop using, your brain is out of balance because it’s used to the presence of drugs. That’s what causes withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe, and they can also change from one to another pretty quickly so it’s a good idea to have medical supervision when you’re detoxing from heroin.

You’ll learn stress management skills while you’re in heroin rehab, as well as some other life skills that you can start using right away. Life happens, and being able to deal with whatever comes your way is key to staying clean and sober. Rehab centers provide a safe environment for you to learn and practice, with help and a community close by.

12 Step Heroin Rehab in Miami

While the 12 steps were originally developed to help alcoholics get and stay sober, the principles are effective for other drugs, such as heroin, too. As you go through the steps, you’ll develop an understanding of how heroin use affected your life as well as the lives of your loved ones. 

You’ll learn how to use the principles in your daily life. The clean and sober community around 12-step groups is large and thriving, so you always have a place to go for support even after you’ve transitioned out of rehab.

Executive Drug Rehab for Heroin in Miami

Not everyone who needs help for heroin use disorders is unhoused. Some addicts are still working, even in high-level positions. This type of drug rehab is designed for executives who may not be able to leave their job duties behind as they work on their recovery. Executive rehabs often feature access to computers and conference rooms.

Breathwork Therapy

Stress is a major trigger for all kinds of issues, including drug abuse. Breathwork helps you stay in the present moment while you focus on your breath, so you can better manage your stress. This type of therapy, once you’ve learned the basic principles, can be practiced anywhere. It’s a great tool to have when something comes up at work or some other place (where otherwise you might have used it) to get away from a problematic situation.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

In this type of therapy, you’ll learn to recognize thought patterns that are false and don’t serve you so that you can replace them with helpful ones. Sometimes the way people think warps reality, so they can’t see clearly what’s going on. This tool is well known for its ability to help anyone with a heroin use disorder or any other addiction, as well as to improve mental health in general.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

These sessions can be conducted both in a group and one-on-one setting. You’ll be working with changing mental patterns, so it’s similar to CBT. However, you’ll be focusing on your emotions instead of thinking. You’ll discover the feelings that lead to the addiction (and other forms of self-harm) so that you can kick the habit.

Family Systems Therapy

What many addicts don’t realize is that their using also affects their families. Sometimes even their family members might not understand how heroin is interfering with their lives, either directly or indirectly. With this type of therapy, your family members learn about their interactions with the disease of addiction. As well as how they can both help themselves and the best support you in your recovery.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

It’s sadly very common for those with substance use disorders to have experienced trauma. Therapists trained in this kind of methodology are aware of the various ways that trauma can affect your life, including neurologically and emotionally. They’ll help you process your experience in a way that helps you move forward and avoids retraumatizing you.
