What to Do During a Heroin Overdose

If someone is showing any symptoms of a heroin overdose, then you should seek medical attention immediately. 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.

Our NJ Heroin Detox and Rehab Services

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.

In addition to customizing care and treatments, we also offer personalized programs, such as our Shalvah Program for Orthodox Jews, our Executive Program for business professionals, and more.

All our residential programs include high-quality housing, nutritional meals provided by world-class chefs, and exceptional onsite amenities – including a sauna and jacuzzi – designed to provide a calm and comforting space. Our clients and their families also have direct access to some of the state’s leading addiction specialists and clinicians.

Why a Heroin Detox Program Is Important

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:

  • Personalized intake and assessment.
  • 24/7 care and medical monitoring from addiction and medical specialists.
  • Medication-assisted treatment using safe and effective medications.
  • A clean and comfortable environment and nutritional, delicious meals.
  • Professional support and encouragement in a safe, comfortable facility.

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.

What to Expect From Heroin Withdrawal

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:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Agitation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Muscle aches

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.

How Long Will Detox Take?

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:

  • How long the drug has been used
  • The amount of drug used
  • The frequency with which the drug is used
  • The person’s overall physical and mental health
  • The individual’s age and weight
  • Available support systems
  • How long the person sticks with treatment

Building the Foundation for Lasting Recovery

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:

  • Short-term and Long-term residential programs, which clients can enroll in immediately after detox to enjoy a safe, stable, and medically monitored living environment and begin the recovery journey.
  • Partial care, which involves living outside the rehab facility and attending professional support and treatment five days a week.
  • Intensive outpatient treatment program, which consist of sessions lasting 9 hours each week, typically spread across three or more days.
  • Outpatient treatment program, which consists of fewer than 9 treatment hours per week and as few as 3 hours across a few days of the week.

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.
