Heroin Addiction Programs at Banyan Mass
Deriving from the Papaver Somniferum poppy plant, heroin was originally developed as a pain reliver in the 1800s and quickly became an addictive and dangerous substance. From day one, heroin has been a particularly dangerous opioid that has destroyed the lives of many. Those struggling with heroin addiction may have started directly with heroin, or with other opiates such as painkillers. As the pain pills become harder to find, many addicts turn to readily-available heroin. But like other opiates, heroin is extremely dangerous. If you are struggling with heroin addiction or other opiate addictions, it is time to find heroin addiction treatment around Mass. Our treatment professionals at Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts are here to help. We offer PHP, IOP, and OP programs for heroin and opioid addiction treatment.
Identifying Heroin Addiction
Like other opiates, heroin is highly addictive. The drug attacks the brain’s limbic system, controlling reward systems, pleasure, motivation, and even memory. As heroin use worsens and addiction develops, users experience symptoms such as:
- Shallow Breathing
- Small Pupils
- Slurred Speech
- Nodding Off to Sleep
There are also behavioral changes that often take place when a person has an active heroin addiction. They may lose interest in hobbies or things that they once enjoyed. Other changes include increased secrecy or stealing. Heroin is a highly manipulative substance. Heroin works in the brain and nervous system, altering reward systems in key brain receptors. It also depresses the spinal cord and central nervous system, which can result in deadly overdoses.
If you are seeing signs of heroin abuse or addiction in a loved one, it’s time to help them by contacting a drug and alcohol rehab in Massachusetts. At Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts, we are here to help patients overcome heroin addiction and challenges with other opiates.
Fentanyl and Heroin
Heroin is a powerful opioid that is increasingly dangerous in today’s fentanyl-flooded opioid market. Many doses of heroin are dangerous on their own, causing overdoses that can be deadly. The situation is even riskier today, with fentanyl increasing the chances of overdosing. Many illegal drug makers are adding fentanyl into opiates such as heroin because fentanyl is cheaper to produce. According to www.dea.gov, fentanyl is 30-50 times more potent than heroin, causing death to occur quickly in an overdose situation. If you or someone you know is struggling with heroin, getting sober can be life-saving.
Detoxing from heroin involves withdrawals that can range in intensity. Withdrawals can happen quickly, even within hours of the last dose of heroin. At Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts, we help patients safely detox from heroin and other harmful substances. Our program for heroin addiction treatment around Mass includes monitored detoxification, offering patients the support they need to safely detox.
Symptoms of heroin withdrawal can include:
- Night Sweats

These symptoms may not always occur during heroin detox, it all depends on the specific patient. Length of heroin use, number of drugs used, patient health, and patient age all influence the severity of withdrawal and detox symptoms. At Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts, we offer assistance to ease heroin detox.
