How Heroin Detox Works

Although recovering from heroin addiction is a life-long journey, the detox process only lasts one to two weeks. Heroin withdrawal symptoms begin as early as six to 24 hours after your last drink, peak between days three and seven, and start to fade over the next few days. Common heroin withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle aches
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Agitation

In more severe heroin addiction cases, withdrawal symptoms may include seizures, high blood pressure, fast heart rate, or hallucinations. The type of withdrawal symptoms you experience depends on the nature and severity of your addiction, as well as your overall health. Regardless of how severe your symptoms are, Summit Detox has a team of professionals that provide immediate emergency medical care. You can feel confident that you are in safe hands.

Treatment Services We Offer at Summit Detox

Our drug detox program consists of comprehensive care to meet all your physical and emotional needs. You have access to a broad spectrum of services such as:

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment: Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses medication to reduce the effects of withdrawal symptoms and cravings during heroin detox. It is a supplemental form of addiction treatment that you can use during detox and rehab if your cravings linger past the initial recovery stage. MAT reduces cravings, reverses a heroin overdose, and blocks the high you get when you take heroin.
  • Emergency Medical Care: Although heroin detox is typically not life-threatening, a long-term addiction can cause health complications during detox. You may experience high blood pressure, seizures, hallucinations, or more threatening medical conditions. We have a licensed and capable medical staff that provides immediate care if you have a medical emergency.
  • A Positive Client Experience: Detox centers in Florida have the stigma of being cold and clinical. At Summit Detox, we strive to create an environment that is inviting, comfortable, and safe. When you arrive at our detox center, you will immediately feel like you are at home away from home. You stay in a warm and comfortable bedroom that is aesthetically pleasing. When you have a more positive experience, you are more likely to complete your addiction treatment.
  • 24-7 On-Call Medical Supervision: Detox can present many challenges, making it challenging to navigate through the withdrawal symptoms. We provide round-the-clock care and support to help you complete the detox part of your recovery. Our treatment programs are personalized, targeting your needs every step of the way. Why detox alone at home when you can partner with our dedicated staff?
