heroin addiction

The Orange County Heroin Task Force was established in 2016 in response to the opioid epidemic. When the Heroin Task Force was established, there were 66 heroin-related deaths. At the time, it was expected that the numbers would continue to climb, which unfortunately, ended up being the case in Orange County. The main objective of this task force was to provide an analysis of the prevalence of opioids in our county, develop recommendations, and develop active plans that can be used to address concerns that have come to be.

What is Heroin?

Heroin falls into the same classification as prescription painkillers, all referred to as opioids. Some individuals abuse prescription painkillers before using heroin, while others may begin with heroin. A growing concern that we have seen across the nation is the presence of fentanyl in illicit drugs such as heroin. Fentanyl is an incredibly powerful opiate that, even in small amounts, can cause fatal overdoses. Overdoses caused by fentanyl may not be reversed if Narcan is used. Whereas, if heroin or prescription pain medications caused an overdose, Narcan could be a life-saving measure. 

Hillside Mission is a heroin rehab center in Mission Viejo, CA. With detoxification treatment, an inpatient rehab program, and an aftercare program, Hillside Mission can provide you with a true continuum of care.

What Are the Signs of Heroin Abuse?

  • Itching
  • Unexplained or unintended weight loss

How to Treat Heroin Addiction

When someone has been struggling with a heroin addiction, the first step is to detox. Allowing your body to adjust to the changes that occur when you stop using will be uncomfortable and likely painful. Additionally, potential health concerns can arise during the withdrawal process, which is why detoxification programs are often recommended. 

Inpatient and outpatient treatment programs are great options for individuals struggling with heroin addiction. Inpatient programs can provide you with space from your home environment and a fully structured day that can help you acclimate to your recovery. 

Outpatient treatment options can range from day programs to routine outpatient services. The benefit of having so many outpatient treatment options is that there are programs for every stage of your recovery that can fit into your lifestyle and routine. 

For individuals who are living with another mental health concern in addition to their heroin addiction, dual-diagnosis treatment can provide them with the best chances of having a successful recovery. Research has proven that receiving treatment for both concerns at the same time can have a lasting impact on a person’s mental health.

Hillside Mission is an Orange County heroin addiction treatment provider with inpatient and outpatient treatment services. In addition to traditional treatment approaches, we provide an opportunity to engage in alternative treatment programs, including art therapy, meditation, yoga, and fitness education within our luxurious facility. To learn more about how our treatment program can support you, call (866) 470-7342 to speak with a representative today.
