Heroin Addiction:

7steps Heroin Addiction

Heroin addiction creates a bio-chemical imbalance. The body systems go through a kind of shock reaction when heroin is first used.Heroin addiction or even brief heroin use burns up the natural nutrient reserves in the body. The body adjusts to the Heroin and demands Heroin instead of processing its natural enzymes and hormones to activate the body’s survival centers. Important normal and natural systems are ‘bypassed’ and the body can become quickly dependant on heroin to feel good or function at all. That is bio-chemical addiction.

Heroin Addiction High:

Heroin addiction occurs after the body adapts to the effects of heroin. Heroin addicts get a temporary pleasure called a ‘high’ or ‘rush’ when they use drugs. Feeling good is a natural reward for doing things which promote better survival for self and others. ‘Pleasure’ is a temporary state. ‘Happiness’ would be the long term condition of feeling good due to creating better survival for self and others. Heroin use creates a temporary artificial pleasure in the heroin addict that ‘rewards’ the addict by killing some of the pain he or she may be feeling. The heroin addict now compulsively or obsessively uses heroin to feel good again.

Addiction and Withdrawal:

Unfortunately, after a person has been using heroin, the side effects or withdrawal period of coming off heroin will follow use. Withdrawing, sometimes called detox, from heroin is usually a short 3 to 5 day period of discomfort, if no medications are given during withdrawal. Medications usually lengthen the time taken for the liver and kidneys to remove heroin from the blood system. The evidence for this is that addicts given medication for withdrawal average almost 2 times longer in withdrawal than holistic withdrawal (excluding a much longer methadone detox, covered on another page of this site). Proven methods of beating heroin addiction and smoothly getting through heroin withdrawal have been discovered by Narconon.

But the short withdrawal period is not the end of heroin addiction. Relapse back to heroin within one week to 2 years is not unusual. The person used heroin as a solution to their problems. To fully end heroin addiction a person has to feel more competent and have developed better skills for living without drugs. The Narconon program does this and more to end addiction.

I have been drug free for
2 years and with no desire or thoughts of ever using drugs again

My addiction started early on. I was drinking at an early age and by the time I was 16 years old, I was experimenting with drugs. I married a man that was aheroin addict and in turn, that’s what I became.

My life of crime also started early because I had to maintain my drug habit. I became quite infamous; my first conviction was in 1971 for breaking and entering. A few years later, I was the first person ever arrested under Crime Solvers in the mid-70s. I was in and out of prison five times. Two of those times, I did 6 years…

My family was upper middle class until I totally depleted their finances through my years of legal fees, bonds, and restitutions.

I had given up. When I first got here [Narconon], I just knew that this place was going to help me because the technique they use here is real and made total sense. This is one program that I completed successfully…

I am a respected and mature adult,
with a family who believes in me again…

I became aware of my addiction when snorting Oxycontin was not enough anymore, and I began to shoot it. Prior to that, I participated in recreational drug use since the age of 14. I went through the progression that one hears about so often; pot and alcohol, to LSD and ecstasy and cocaine, and ketamine, pharmaceuticals and then heroin.

The last years of my heroin addiction were the scariest times I could ever imagine anyone going through. I stole, lied, spent most of my day in the pursuit of opiates, and did all the terrible and pointless things that addicts do.

I decided that I needed to get help that would actually work. I did not want to do another 12 step program that would make me feel like I would never stop using and my life was just an endless cycle of relapses.

Anyone who’s done the Narconon program could tell you of the carefully laid out steps that guide one to an ultimately empowered and aware state where one’s life becomes so much clearer.

…there is really no other program out there that will change a tired and hopeless addict into a productive, happy, and sane individual again.

I am a respected and mature adult, with a family who believes in me again. I am married to a moral and upstanding man…I am healthy and clear about my future…

For anyone out there that is struggling with addiction and wants to be free, for anyone who has a loved one or a neighbor or friend that needs a permanent solution, there is a program that will help once and for all.
