I NEED HELP WITH Heroin ADDICTION
The minute you start using heroin, you’re living on borrowed time. Long-term use of this drug will turn you into something that your loved ones, and even you, don’t even recognize. If you’re seeking help, you already know what a nightmare heroin addiction is and are looking for answers. Maybe you started shooting up to escape from trauma. Maybe you started snorting or smoking it when you could no longer get prescription painkillers. When you’re using heroin, the reality is that your options for the future become limited. Either you overdose or you find a new life in recovery. However you started your journey to heroin addiction, Recovery Unplugged is here to help you come back.
WHAT IS HEROIN DOING TO YOUR BODY?
You’ve undoubtedly experienced the euphoria and crippling withdrawal symptoms of heroin addiction. These symptoms occur because the drug is binding to specific MU-opioid receptors in your brain, creating a rush of dopamine, the brain chemical that’s responsible for feelings of pleasure and well-being. Over time these rushes of dopamine reinforce your drug-seeking behavior, and you find yourself unable to stop. Heroin addiction puts willpower up against brain chemistry, which is usually a losing battle without proper treatment and ongoing support. Over time, these cravings will only intensify and it will get harder and harder to get off of this drug.
Long-term heroin abuse causes many obvious physical changes and physical health issues, including but not limited to:
- Muscle and Bone Pain
- Extreme Weight Loss
- Insomnia and Sleep Disorder
- Nausea, Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Heart Attack and Stroke
- Fever and Flu-Like Symptoms
- High Blood Pressure
- Sunken Eyes
- Pale and Discolored Skin
- Skin Issues (Breakouts and Track Marks)
DON'T BE ANOTHER STATISTIC
Recovery Unplugged is here to help you or your loved one take their life back.

There’s a healing element of music in each of our behavioral interventions, and we offer customized aftercare plans to help stay on track in long-term recovery.

If deemed eligible by our clinical staff, you may have access to MAT resources, like Vivitrol® or Suboxone®, to help you reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Recovery Unplugged is a trusted Vivitrol provider and is ready to walk you through the process of determining eligibility.
