Heroin Addiction

Content Overview: Heroin, a powerful opiate that comes from the poppy plant, has unfortunately become a commonly abused drug in America thanks to the opioid epidemic of the last ten years. South Coast Counseling has been treating heroin addiction since before the epidemic, with success. Our goal as a facility is to continue to stay at the forefront of treatment and provide heroin addicts with a solution to their problem.

Heroin is so highly addictive, just a single dose can be the start of a downward spiral. Heroin users have a “look” that is easy to recognize. It includes excessive thinness, sunken cheeks, dark circles under the eyes, a waxy complexion and greasy hair. Heroin overdoses can result in coma, life-changing side effects and even death.

The effects of heroin addiction are devastating. Here at South Coast Counseling, we have treated a number of individuals who have suffered from heroin use. Sometimes they may get started with another drug and then move up to heroin. Sometimes heroin may be the drug of choice.

Our substance abuse treatment services can help you overcome your addictions. Whether you have alcohol addiction, hydrocodone addiction or need heroin addiction treatment in Seattle,LA, Orange County, or Phoenix, we can help you take control of your life and reach your full potential. Now is the time to call us so we can set up a treatment plan to address your needs.
