Things to Discuss Before Signing Up for a Rehab Program
Sometimes treatment is not available in your local area, so you may have to go to a rehab program hours away or even in another state. Should you? Will it affect your recovery? There are several advantages to doing so. First, it will give you a chance to focus on your recovery away from your usual surroundings in which the drug abuse took place. Going away to treatment often leads to a mentality shift where you are more focused on recovery since you left home to seek it. In addition, if treatment gets too rough, you may be more inclined to stick it out if you are a further distance away.
If you have used heroin for so long that you are now dependent on it, quitting will be tough. During the withdrawal period, your body will go through many changes. Here are some of the effects of heroin withdrawal that you may experience:
- Aches and pains
- Mood changes
- Stomach pain/diarrhea
