Heroin Addiction Treatment & Detox Centers In Kentucky

People of all ages become addicted to heroin and most addictions start with prescription opioids. According to SAMHSA, the majority of heroin users started abusing prescription opioids. Heroin is a more readily available drug and is cheaper than prescription opioids. A prescription pill habit does become expensive, and heroin delivers much of the same effect. Both types of drugs are highly addictive and create strong physical and psychological dependencies. The Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy reported 31% of the overdose deaths in 2016 were among people ages 35 to 44. Most heroin users start abusing the drug at a young age. When you continue with heroin use throughout your adult years, it becomes more difficult to treat. Heroin addiction requires an effective detox and withdrawal period. This will ensure the addict can make it through the withdrawals without any problem. After detox, they should attend a long-term residential drug rehab center, followed by aftercare treatment.
