Heroin Addiction Treatment Programs in Worcester

We’re glad you’re here. It means you’re taking the first step to get help for yourself or a loved one suffering from heroin addiction. 

Heroin, like other opiates, is a highly addictive drug leading the country into its current epidemic. Most cases of heroin dependence begin with prescription opioids used for chronic pain or surgical recovery. A heroin dependence has shown to have devastating repercussions on its user as well as their friends and family. Don’t let your life slip away, our addiction specialists are here to help. 

If you are using heroin and/or prescription narcotics you may experience one or more of the following Signs of Heroin Addiction:

  • Insomnia
  • Confusion
  • Missing work or school
  • Weight loss
  • Social isolation
  • Depression
  • Collapsed veins, abscesses
  • constipation
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Slurred speech

If you are concerned about a loved one using, there are some noticeable Signs of Heroin Abuse:

  • Pinpoint Pupils
  • Nodding
  • Itching of Nose
  • Withdrawal symptoms (flu like in nature)
  • Slight flushing of the cheeks

With increased heroin and/or prescription narcotic use, you build up a tolerance and require a higher dose each time to achieve the same desired effect. This creates a dangerous situation in which an accidental overdose is likely. The risk of overdose has never been greater, especially since the widespread introduction of the synthetic opioid, Fentanyl, a manufactured analgesic many times more deadly than heroin. A brief categorization of the various forms these deadly and highly addictive substances are found here.

Heroin’s highly addictive composition makes breaking the cycle of dependence extremely difficult, but you don’t have to face recovery alone, nor feel the shame or guilt often associated with drug use.

We’re here to release you from the burden of your heroin addiction and stand by your side as you start on the road to recovery.

These wellness activities are designed to foster resiliency, an innate ability which we believe, here at Lake Ave Recovery, is fundamental to developing the recovery capital necessary to engage in sustainable healthy living. Our belief is backed by several research studies that advocate its effectiveness. Resilience is an “inner state or intrinsic quality of the human psyche” (Burke, 2006) relevant to the addiction recovery process (Harris et al., 2011). It is the ability to experience pain and difficulty and “snap back” toward an “active process of self-righting and growth” (Higgins, 1994). Resiliency is more than mere belief; it involves self-efficacy and coping skills in the presence of “high-risk” stress and is considered “the core of recovery” (Harris et al., 2011, p. 270).

Comfort, Curiosity, Care, and Concern are the cornerstones of our heroin addiction recovery program. With evidence-based therapies, wellness and self-care activities, and spirit-centered philosophies, we can help you recover from heroin addiction and bring the joy back to your life.
