10 Reasons Why You Want to Be at a Rehab Center When You Detox From Heroin

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, heroin withdrawal is not deadly. According to most addicts, heroin withdrawal might make you wish you were dead. Most people do not make it when they attempt to withdrawal from heroin without the benefits of a rehab center. There are a wide variety of reasons why you want to detox in a rehab center instead of at home.

1. Heroin Cravings

Heroin cravings are said to be some of the worst cravings drug cravings there are. When they start, you are aware that only one hit will stop the intense cravings and misery. If you are at home instead of a rehab, it is very easy to give into that craving.

2. Easy to Relapse

It is extremely easy to relapse outside of a rehab center. When you know that a hit of heroin will make all of the symptoms of withdrawal go away and you have access to it, relapse is almost immanent once withdrawal hits without a safe place that is devoid of heroin.

3. Mood Changes

Once withdrawal hits your mood will fluctuate very quickly. You might go from depressed to angry to irritated and back to depressed in a matter of hours. The doctors at a rehab center can help stabilize your mood so you are not miserable while in withdrawal.

4. Insomnia

Detox From Heroin

Heroin withdrawal symptoms can include insomnia, fever, nausea, and cravings.

There are treatments for the insomnia associated with withdrawal. Some of these treatments involve additional medications while others involve counseling and relaxation techniques.

5. Fever

It is not unusual to spike a fever while you are in withdrawal. This is sometimes extremely unpleasant as your body temperature changes from hot to cold back to hot again. There are fever reducers available but only a rehab center or hospital can help if your fever gets dangerously high.

6. Pain

Heroin withdrawal is intensely painful. You suffer from muscle aches, joint pain, and headaches. A rehab center can provide pain control techniques and medications until the worst of the withdrawal is over.

7. Excess Body Fluids

This is more annoying than anything but in a rehab center medication to correct the runny nose, watery eyes, and various other body fluids that well up is convenient and available.

8. Diarrhea and Cramping

During this point in withdrawal, you are in serious danger of dehydration. A rehab facility will help keep you hydrated even if you do not feel well enough to drink water or electrolytes.

9. Nausea and Vomiting
