Do I Need Residential Heroin Rehab?

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, it can be a complicated and overwhelming experience. It’s common to feel unsure about when or if treatment is necessary. Here are some signs that may indicate the need for addiction treatment:

  1. Increased tolerance: If you need to use more of a substance to achieve the same effect, it can be a sign of addiction. This can feel isolating and worrisome.
  2. Withdrawal symptoms: If you experience physical or emotional symptoms when you try to stop using heroin, it can be a sign of addiction.
  3. Negative consequences: If your heroin use is causing problems in your personal or professional life, it can feel overwhelming and stressful.
  4. Difficulty quitting: If you have tried to quit on your own, via outpatient therapy options or even through an inpatient programme, and have been unsuccessful, it can feel like an impossible task. 

We have experience being the last resort to many, and we have helped them find their way and stay sober in the long-term.

What Will Happen during Heroin Detox at the Providence Projects?

During heroin detox at the Providence Projects, our experienced team will guide you through safely managing withdrawal symptoms and beginning your healing journey. We understand that detoxification can be a challenging and uncomfortable experience, which is why we prioritise your safety and well-being throughout the process.

Our medically trained team will be there for you during your stay and help you through the cleansing process. First, we will ensure your body is stable and healthy enough to go through heroin detox. Once safe, we will begin the cleansing.

At the Providence Projects, we are committed to providing compassionate care and evidence-based treatment for heroin dependence. Your safety is our top priority, and we are here to support you every step of the way on your journey towards recovery.

Managing Withdrawal

Symptoms of withdrawal can cause serious health problems if not managed correctly under proper medical supervision. At the Providence Projects, we use the following prescribed medications to reduce cravings and soften the effect on your physical health that withdrawal may have.


Methadone is a long-acting medicine that influences your opioid receptors to block the effects of opioids. As a result, Methadone is an effective and safe measure used to reduce the intensity of adverse physical symptoms and to make cravings more manageable.


Naltrexone is another prescribed medicine that can safely manage withdrawal symptoms by influencing the same opioid receptors. Naltrexone serves as an anti-depressant that reduces mood swings and the intensity of cravings and uplifts your mood, which can help you overcome the adverse symptoms of withdrawal.


Buprenorphine, also known as Suboxone, is an opioid partial agonist that produces a milder exhilarating and calming effect than heroin and other opioids. In a controlled environment, it’s a safe and effective way to gradually reduce your physical dependence on opioids while reducing heroin cravings.

Our Heroin Rehabilitation Programme

At our heroin rehabilitation programme, we offer a range of evidence-based therapies proven to help recover from addiction and achieve lasting sobriety. From cognitive-behavioural therapy to group counselling sessions, our experienced professionals will tailor a treatment plan specifically for you, ensuring you receive the support and tools needed to heal and rebuild your life.

Evidence-Based Therapies for Heroin Addiction

Evidence-based therapies used in heroin addiction treatment include cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and contingency management (CM). CBT helps identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours associated with drug use, while CM provides rewards for abstaining from heroin.

By incorporating these evidence-based therapies into our heroin rehabilitation programme at The Providence Projects, we can provide you with the best possible chance for long-term recovery. Our experienced team understands the challenges of overcoming addiction, and we are committed to supporting you every step of your journey towards healing and change.
