Treatment for Heroin Dependence, Addiction, and Withdrawal

The chronicled epidemic of Oxycodone products (Oxycontin, Percocet) and Hydrocodone products (Vicodin, Norco) has contributed to an increase in Heroin use.

Heroin, like other drugs, does not discriminate. Heroin can affect wealthy and high functioning people. EHD has treated male and female clients addicted to Heroin who have worked on Wall Street and who interact at the highest levels of society. Heroin Home Detox has the potential to be extremely uncomfortable and often results in continued opiate use. The client dependent on opiates is often stuck; they no longer get “high” and they continue to use so they don’t get “sick”. EHD can help!

A heroin home detox can be orchestrated using a variety of supervised medication protocols. The withdrawal of short acting opiates like heroin can be accomplished in five to ten days depending on the mode of medication management.

Discretion and privacy are assured during and after your Heroin detox; in fact, detoxing at home with the help of a dedicated team or registered detox nurse (under the supervision of a qualified physician) is an effective way to ensure your privacy.

Heroin is an opiate drug that is synthesized from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky substance, known as “black tar heroin.” (NIDA – National Institute of Drug Abuse)
