Heroin Rehab in Anaheim, California

Heroin detox prepares you or your loved one to enter a heroin treatment program. Once you complete detox, that does not mean you have completed treatment.

Completing a heroin treatment program helps you learn to enjoy sober living without the short-term and long-term effects of using heroin. The dangers and risks associated with heroin addiction increase the likelihood of permanent damage or heroin overdose.

Treatment professionals help you to break the dangerous cycle of using heroin and putting yourself at risk of health issues or death from heroin abuse. Choose a rehab program that guides you to get your life back on track without relying on heroin or another substance to get high.

What is Inpatient Heroin Rehab Like?

A heroin addiction treatment program provides the programs and services needed to live a healthy lifestyle without heroin use or feeling that you need other opioid drugs to get through the day. Some people have a misconception that detox is the same as treatment.

Detoxification from heroin rids your body of the drug. Many people receive medication-assisted treatment during the detox process, which helps them to overcome heroin withdrawal symptoms and resist cravings. Medically assisted detox prepares your brain and the rest of your body to start the process of recovery. Detox lasts for approximately seven days. Treatment programs last for a longer time. The time that you spend in treatment depends on your recovery needs.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a support group for individuals with a dependence or addiction to a drug. It is not addiction treatment.

Many people who attend support groups or receive intensive outpatient or inpatient treatment have an addiction to more than one drug. Inpatient heroin rehab consists of various comprehensive programs, therapies, and services that treat the whole person. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) provides a Principles of Effective Treatment list. 

Principles that NIDA indicates are crucial for any effective treatment program include:

  • Counseling and other types of behavioral therapies are common forms of drug treatment
  • Medications are often used when treating a substance abuse disorder
  • Effective treatment programs address all the patient’s needs and not only the drug use
  • Treatment facilities need to assess clients for mental health disorders
  • No single treatment plan is the right plan for every person
  • Staying in treatment long enough is critical for a successful recovery

Many individuals complete an aftercare program after completing the residential rehab program. Aftercare provides the additional support and life skills preparation some people need before returning to their homes and communities.

Treatment for Heroin Addiction

Heroin treatment starts with undergoing a thorough assessment. The assessment helps to determine your individual treatment needs.

The staff performing the assessment and the other professionals on your treatment team treat you with dignity and respect. Treatment for heroin addiction does not include shaming you, embarrassing you, or trying to make you feel less than people who do not have a heroin addiction.

Heroin treatment program therapists provide you with information about heroin and addiction. You learn that addiction is a disease. Heroin binds to receptors in the brain and releases a chemical called dopamine. You discover that you used increasing amounts of heroin because more and more of the drug is required to get the same feeling you experienced the first time.

Knowing that addiction is a disease helps you and your loved ones understand that the inability to stop heroin was not your fault. Family members often participate in family therapy and other activities while you complete your rehab in Anaheim, California.

Mental health issues are common among people who have a heroin addiction. A WebMD article reveals that the results of one study showed that 75% of people who use heroin have mental health disorders such as depression, ADHD, or bipolar disorder.

Treatment professionals, including those at Restorations Healthcare in Southern California, have the training, experience, and other expertise necessary to provide patients with comprehensive treatment programs and therapies.

Medications used for patients in a rehab center often include Buprenorphine and Naltrexone. Your heroin treatment plan may include these or other medications. Your rehab program likely consists of different therapies which depend on your specialized needs. Some addiction therapy services that you may receive include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Experiential therapy
  • Psychotherapy program
  • Dialectical behavior therapy program
  • Individual and group therapy

Some other therapy services include adventure therapy, nutritional counseling and exercise therapy, music, and art therapy. Relapse prevention training helps to prepare you for living a lifestyle that includes healthy choices without returning to using heroin.

Let the addiction specialists, medical doctors, counselors, and other professionals help you start your recovery journey today.

Benefits of Heroin Rehabilitation

You likely used alcohol, marijuana, or other opioid drugs to get high before you started using heroin. You are among the 80% of people who use other opioids before they use heroin. It does not matter how you use heroin. It still carries the same risks of addiction, short-term and long-term health effects, and risk of overdose and death.

The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics (NCDAS) indicates that between 2019 and 2020, the use of heroin increased among all people in the U.S. who were over 12 years of age. There were 691,000 Americans who had a heroin use disorder in 2020 and more than 14,000 annual deaths in the United States from heroin.

One benefit of heroin rehabilitation is that completing a comprehensive treatment program helps you to reduce your risk of being among these statistics.

Heroin addiction can happen to anyone. It does not matter whether you are young or old and from all walks of life.

Heroin addiction affects every aspect of your life. Did you lose your job, lose your home, or your family? You are among many people with similar experiences.

You likely denied that you have had an addiction for a long time. Enrolling in a heroin addiction treatment center can help you regain your life and to experience hope for the future.

Discover insight into your triggers. Break the cycle of endless attempts to stop using heroin without success. The comprehensive, individualized treatment plans through inpatient heroin rehab programs help you discover the right path to your recovery journey. Reduce your risk of relapse by completing a treatment program that guides you to relearn how to deal with life’s stressful times without using heroin.

Typical Schedule of Inpatient Rehab for Heroin Addiction

Do not believe the misconception that heroin treatment is a boring process. You participate in various therapy sessions and learn how to develop and maintain healthy relationships, socialize in healthy ways, and have fun without using heroin or other drugs. It is possible to relearn the healthy lifestyle that you had before heroin took over your life.

The schedule you follow is likely not the same as everyone else in the rehab program. Do not think that the therapists or counselors singled you out. You do not have the same schedule because every client has a personalized treatment plan.

Therapists and other treatment professionals adjust treatment plans during the rehab program. Some people have a 30-day stay in treatment, while other people stay for 60 days. Your progress determines the length of your inpatient rehab stay.

Do you use other opioids besides heroin? Do you have anxiety, depression, or other mental health disorders? The holistic treatment program treats the whole person, not just your heroin addiction.

Gain insight into maintaining a sober life and continue a successful recovery. Some components of your schedule will likely include individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and family therapy. The 12-step process is an important part of treatment.

You have many opportunities for socializing and fun, including music and art therapy, attending local events, and adventure activities.

Paying for Heroin Rehab

Do not fear paying for treatment if you use other opioids or alcohol in addition to heroin. Treatment programs treat the whole person, not just a single addiction.

The individual needs of each client determine the cost of their treatment. You may not pay the same amount for your rehab as another person.

There are several options to pay for heroin rehab at an inpatient treatment center. Talk to an admissions specialist to learn your payment options. Do not let stress over paying for treatment keep you from seeking treatment.


People who enter residential heroin treatment programs sometimes have insurance that covers treatment costs. You may have insurance that pays a portion of your rehab or all your rehab program costs.

Discuss your insurance with the admissions specialist at Restorations Health Care in Southern California. Do not worry about completing a mountain of forms and other paperwork or feeling embarrassed by having to call the insurance company to determine if you have coverage. The staff takes care of contacting your insurance company and completing the process for payment.

Private pay

Individuals who do not have insurance pay for their inpatient treatment and their aftercare as private pay clients. Do you want to maintain your privacy? You are not alone if you have insurance but choose to enter the treatment program as a private pay patient. Discuss becoming a private pay client instead of billing your insurance company with the admissions specialist. We respect your desire for privacy regarding your treatment at Restorations Health Care.
