Now is the time

Opiates, such as heroin, are highly addictive drugs. At first, the signs of addiction may not always be prevalent, but prolonged use of opiates can lead to tolerance, physical dependence, and addiction. Individuals battling an addiction to opiates will often continue using the drug despite the negative consequences to their relationships, finances, and physical and mental health. Many individuals will also deny their addiction to opiates, because they are afraid of judgment from family or friends, or because they are not fully aware of its negative effects on their life.

With recovery, there is hope for healing from the pain of addiction. If you or a loved one is battling an addiction to opiates such as heroin, now is the time to seek help for treatment. Here are four reasons to start looking for help today.

1. Recovery is better with support

Maybe you or a loved one has tried to quit using drugs like heroin in the past with no success. This fear of failure can fill people with self-doubt, tricking them into believing they will never succeed in recovery. It’s true; recovery is challenging, ongoing process. But with the support of counselors, medical professionals, and peers in recovery, individuals with a substance use disorder can stay encouraged and motivated to overcome these challenges.

2. There are options for recovery

When it comes to treating addiction, no two individuals are alike. When you make the decision to enroll in a recovery program, you’ll work directly with a counselor to create an individualized treatment plan that works for you. Many of our outpatient provider partners will help you work around a busy work schedule, with treatment options in late afternoon and evenings to avoid the need to use their vacation time or sick leave. This customized approach to treatment ensures that you are in control throughout the recovery process.

3. Recovery can be affordable
