Our Heroin Treatment Program | Recovery Unplugged

Heroin Treatment

Look in the Mirror…Now Start Looking Ahead

There are few, if any, types of substance abuse care more urgent and complex than heroin treatment. Heroin renders users dependent in rapid-fire fashion, and along the way, creates a whole litany of acute and long-term medical physical damage. It puts the user’s brain and body through the ringer, and locks them in a vicious cycle of cravings, withdrawal, relapse which will eventually lead to overdose. Over 15,400 Americans died of heroin overdose in 2015, according to data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. For every one of these tragedies, there was a previous pathology of sickness, pain, withdrawal and a breakdown in quality of life, that signaled the critical need for treatment. Don’t become another casualty of the ticking clock of heroin addiction. If you or someone you care about is struggling with heroin addiction, call Recovery Unplugged today at (855) 384-5794 to start treatment.

Recovery Unplugged Clinical - Heroin

What Does Effective Heroin Treatment Look Like?

Heroin treatment should be treated a complex, long-term customized medical intervention similar to the management of conditions like heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes and all types of mental illness. It requires immediate and pointed interventions to address the acute physical conditions associated with the condition, as well as the behavioral and psychological damage that heroin users have experienced in the wake of prolonged and untreated abuse. Recovery Unplugged offers customized, music-assisted heroin treatment for clients in all stages of heroin addiction. Our full continuum of care includes:

Medically Supervised Detox

The heroin withdrawal period, no matter how long individuals have been using, is physically and emotionally arduous process, exemplified through a variety of sickening and painful symptoms. It’s critical that individuals have compassionate, effective and medically supervised care during the acute stages of their withdrawal. Recovery Unplugged offers heroin detox at our facilities in Lake Worth, FL and Austin, TX, where our patients receive the care they need from doctors and nurses who are trained in the pathology of addiction withdrawal. Medical detox during heroin treatment offers comfort, peace of mind, dignity and discretion during an incredibly difficult stage of the recovery process.

Behavioral Rehab

The Recovery Unplugged heroin rehab model is different and more intuitive than any other. We are the first and only addiction treatment organization to fully integrate music into our rehab model, while offering state-of-the-art, cutting-edge clinical resources. We offer a variety of heron rehab models offered at our facilities through the United States including inpatient, outpatient, partial hospitalization (PHP), long-term and others. The process is designed to help clients heal as individuals and a take holistic account of the damage heron has done to their lives. Rehab helps them address the root causes of their heroin addiction while they work toward repairing the social, professional and lifestyle relationships that have suffered in the wake of this disease.

The Use of Music in Heroin Treatment

Our rehab process uses music to engage existing evidence-based heroin treatment elements, such as group therapy, counseling and various supplemental modalities. Clients are understandably reluctant and anxious during the treatment process; Recovery Unplugged uses music, in social, physiological and emotional contexts, to help them more readily embrace recovery and the care process. These techniques, include passive and active engagement with music through exercises like:

  • Songwriting and Poetry
  • Music-Centric Group Therapy
  • Personalized Playlists
  • Performances from Artists in Recovery
  • Open-Mic Performances
  • Feel-Good Friday
  • Production and Recording

The idea is to leverage the catharsis, universality and physiological benefits of music to help clients be more open to treatment and recovery. Music is part of everything we do at Recovery Unplugged, from pre-screening to discharge.
