A heroin overdose can be treated with naloxone (sold as an injectable and nasal spray under the brand names NARCAN and KLOXXADO) that must be administered as soon as possible. Make sure when communicating with the 911 dispatcher to inform them of the heroin use so that the paramedics can be properly prepared when they arrive.
The team at Soba NJ understands that it can be overwhelming to reach out for help. If you are not ready to make a phone call, feel free to text with one of our caring treatment coordinators right now.

Our programs allow clients to benefit from a team-based approach, comprehensive treatment services, and a level of personalization that makes a difference.
Our heroin rehab services are organized into a three-phase program that can be tailored at every stage to address a client’s specific needs and recovery goals. This multi-phase program tackles issues critical helping patients safely and successfully detox from heroin, find support in ways that work for them, and stay on track while planning and navigating the next steps.

Our clients and their families also have direct access to some of the state’s leading addiction specialists and clinicians.
Addiction is a chronic disease with relapse rates similar to other chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. But when it comes to drugs with as powerful as heroin, relapse rates can be quite high. In fact, some studies estimate that 72% to 88% of people relapse within the first three years of quitting heroin.
While these numbers may seem intimidating, it’s important to know that addiction is treatable, and people do get better. That’s especially true when people battling heroin addictions have access to proven and customizable treatment services that help them manage some of the biggest barriers to success – withdrawal and the initial stages of recovery.
At SOBA New Jersey, we’re proud to offer medical detox as the first step in our heroin rehab program.
Some of the benefits of our heroin detox program:
Our opiate detox programs may include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which uses prescription medications to help manage and reduce uncomfortable heroin withdrawal symptoms. Common medications used to treat heroin addiction and withdrawal include Methadone, Suboxone, and Vivitrol.
Research has shown that medication-assisted treatment, when used in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, can provide a whole-person approach to treating substance use disorders, help people safely withdrawal from opiates like heroin, prevent and reduce risks of overdose, and promote sustained recovery.
When someone addicted to heroin stops using, withdrawal symptoms kick in. They can appear as quickly as 6 to 12 hours after the last heroin dose. It may feel like a bad case of the flu, with the worst part of it lasting about a week.
Some immediate symptoms you may experience include:
After the initial withdrawal symptoms pass, post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS) may kick in. This includes poor sleep, inability to focus, anxiety, depression, fatigue, memory loss, mood swings, and more. These symptoms last between 18 and 24 months, but as the user remains drug-free with proper addiction treatment services, the symptoms slowly begin to disappear.
The reality is that you have to fully go through detox in order to get free from heroin addiction. Typically, heroin withdrawal symptoms will peak within 3 to 4 days. From there, symptoms will decrease in intensity each day after.
The overall detox time will vary from person to person depending on factors like:
Our heroin rehab in New Brunswick, NJ offers treatment programs that provide a level of flexibility and personalization to help people from all walks of life. That includes two primary options: inpatient and outpatient rehab.
Residential treatment is for those who want to stay at the facility for the duration of their treatment, while outpatient treatment takes place at a facility and allows a person to live at home. The time for treatment will vary for each person. Typically, people start with a 28-day stay at a residential treatment center and collaborate with their primary counselor to decide the next steps.
For cases of heroin addiction, where residential rehab is almost always recommended, clients will generally detox, move on to our residential program, and progress to receiving treatment while in Transitional Sober Living or through our other treatment program options. These include:
Our programs offer various therapies, psychoeducation courses, group counseling and 12-step meetings, transportation, and case management services. Our specialists also provide dual diagnosis treatment, adventure therapy, family counseling, mental health treatment, and nutrition and wellness services.
Our goal is to make the heroin detox and recovery process as comfortable and effective as possible, which is why we customize our programs to meet each individual’s unique needs.
