Heroin addiction treatment options are available at our rehabilitation center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Heroin is well known as one of the most addictive substances, as someone can feel the need to use it again after just one or two uses. As an opioid, it affects the opioid receptors in the user’s brain and body’s nerve cells by delivering a feeling of euphoria. Heroin can be injected, smoked, snorted or sniffed.
Heroin use disorder leads to very serious short-term and long-term damage, from slowing your mental function to potentially overdose. Patients generally experience a difficult period of withdrawal when they try to stop using heroin.
But there’s good news, too: Iris Wellness Group can help you recover. Our professional staff creates custom treatments that help you step on the road to recovery and stay there.
