What Is Heroin Addiction Treatment?


Heroin addiction treatment is a comprehensive approach to help individuals overcome dependence on heroin. It typically includes a combination of medical detoxification to manage withdrawal symptoms, behavioral therapies to address the psychological aspects of addiction, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to reduce cravings and prevent relapse, and support services to assist with social, occupational, and legal issues. 

The goal is to achieve lasting recovery and improve the overall quality of life for those affected by heroin addiction. At Right Choice Recovery, we’re committed to guiding you from the shadows of addiction into the light of recovery, every step of the way.

Tailored Recovery Programs for Heroin Addiction

Comprehensive Partial Care Program

Our Partial Care Program is specifically designed for those transitioning from heroin addiction, offering an intensive level of support within a structured yet flexible outpatient framework. Operating Monday through Friday, this program includes:

  • Group therapy sessions to cultivate coping mechanisms and foster a sense of community.
  • Individual counseling focused on addressing personal recovery goals and overcoming challenges.
  • A range of therapeutic activities, including art therapy and mindfulness, aimed at enhancing overall wellness.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Heroin Treatment

The Intensive Outpatient Program at Right Choice Recovery offers a dynamic approach for those seeking significant therapeutic support without the need for residential care.

This allows clients to engage in meaningful recovery work while balancing the demands of their everyday lives.

Flexible Outpatient Services for Ongoing Support

Through a combination of individual counseling, group therapy, and family involvement, we create a supportive framework that encourages recovery and growth.

Engaging Families in the Recovery Process

The journey to recovery from heroin addiction is not a journey taken alone. At Right Choice Recovery, we emphasize the importance of family involvement through our Adolescent Family Program. This initiative seeks to educate, support, and involve family members in the recovery process, offering tools and strategies to create a supportive home environment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment at Right Choice Recovery

At Right Choice Recovery, we understand the critical role that medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can play in the recovery from opioid addiction, including heroin and fentanyl. MAT combines FDA-approved medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders in a holistic and effective manner. Our MAT program is designed to alleviate withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and lower the chance of relapse, providing a more manageable path toward recovery.

Our experienced medical team closely monitors the MAT process, ensuring that it is integrated seamlessly with each client’s personalized treatment plan. Medications such as Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone), Vivitrol (naltrexone), and other appropriate options are considered to support recovery, depending on individual needs and circumstances. This approach not only addresses the physical aspects of addiction but also supports clients in their journey to address and heal underlying issues through comprehensive therapy and support services.

Right Choice Recovery’s commitment to incorporating MAT as part of our addiction treatment services underscores our dedication to offering evidence-based, compassionate care. We believe in providing our clients with all the tools necessary for a successful recovery, and MAT is a crucial component of the holistic care we provide to those battling opioid addiction.
