When clients addicted to opioids like heroin stop using, they usually experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms like pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Medications can be helpful in this detoxification stage to reduce cravings and other physical symptoms which often drive a person to relapse. While not a treatment for addiction itself, a medically supervised heroin detox is a necessary first step, which is then followed by evidence-based primary care treatment. Gladstones applies integrative medical, cognitive behavioural and psychological treatments as part of a highly successful abstinance-based heroin recovery programme. It will be hard work, but we support our clients compassionately all the way through it! Are you or a loved one ready to get clean once and for all?
