Why is Medical Detox Necessary?
When it comes to heroin withdrawal, medical detox is always necessary. This is partially because Medication Assisted Treatment is generally utilized as part of a comprehensive heroin detox program. At CuraWest, we believe that MAT can benefit clients in numerous ways. Not only do some medications alleviate symptoms of heroin withdrawal almost completely, but they effectively combat the psychological cravings that lead many individuals to relapse before the recovery process has come to an end. Some of the medications we utilize in the treatment of heroin withdrawal include Suboxone, clonidine and other comfort medications. These medications are far safer than opioid narcotics, but they save the same basic internal function by attaching to opioid receptors within the brain. At CuraWest we believe that medication, when used, should always be part of a more comprehensive detox program — one that includes other methods of healing as well, such as therapy and holistic modalities.
We also believe that medical detox is only the first step on the road to recovery. Once a client has been physically stabilized they have the option of immediately transitioning into the residential portion of our program, and continuing on with therapeutic and clinical care.
