Heroin Addiction Treatment in Cape Town South Africa
Heroin Rehab in Cape Town
Heroin Addiction is a worldwide problem, it is a deeply damaging drug which, like other addictions, has an effect on everyone around the addict. It’s very difficult for a close friend or family member to understand changes in a persons behaviours caused by addiction so that’s why we offer family support and interventions should they need it. Read about a mothers struggle with her addict son here. Heroin addiction treatment in Cape Town South Africa is very good but requires commitment and the only proven course of action is something similar to our Heroin Rehab in Cape Town alongside the huge professional and peer support but most importantly, a lot of hard work. The way Heroin works is by producing a “downer” effect that quickly induces a state of relaxation and euphoria (this is related to chemical changes in the pleasure area of the brain). Like other opiates, using it blocks the ability of the brain to perceive pain and this is why it is used, in it’s purest form, alongside other opiates, as a strong and effective pain killer in hospitals and for patients suffering from acute and chronic pain. Initially, users, particularly those with a prior history of drug abuse, may be able to conceal signs and symptoms of their heroin use but this gets harder the longer the use goes on. It is highly addictive and one of the most difficult drugs to overcome. Detox is essential and will always be uncomfortable initially but with the correct medical detox and support it is bearable and does quickly get better. This is how the addiction rehabilitation process works with CapeRecovery. The hard work is staying away from it as it’s draw is compelling and inexplicable considering the damage it can cause.
