Introduction to Heroin

Very few drugs strike the fear into society the way heroin does. What is heroin? Heroin is a highly addictive “opiate” or a “pain killer”. Heroin is a powerful drug that has caused innumerable lives to be lost in overdose cases. With the right help and guidance, heroin addicts can and do recover each and every day. There is hope.

Heroin Addiction & Relapse

One of the biggest reasons people become so addicted and need inpatient treatment is that their tolerance for the drug develops so quickly. This tolerance drives them to take more of the substance to reach the same effect. Consequent withdrawal effects are traumatic and users are forced back into a relapse cycle to abate the incessant cravings.

Heroin Detox Clinics in Cape Town

Heroin recovery centres begin to arrest the volume of drug intake reshaping the tolerance spectrum. Detox thus includes weaning the patient down to a manageable, controlled and less life threatening point. Thereafter heroin rehabs focus on building the psychological fortitude in a safe supportive environment.
